Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Does anyone have Wicd working in Slackware 12.0? I have put all the files that come with it in their correct places and the Wicd item appears under the menu in KDE but clicking it does not open the application.
I have tried to activate the system tray icon but to no avail. Do I need to be disabling something or does it just not function properly in Slackware?
let me know if you still need help. sounds like you didnt start up the wicd daemon "/opt/wicd/daemon.py" at boot time. if you use slackware you will also have to replace the networking.py with a modified one, for wicd is setup to use dhclient, while slackware uses dhcpcd to update the resol.conf realtime. oh wells, email me if you still need the help.
I wish I'd seen this thread back in September.
You just might want to give it a try with nawcom's modified networking.py script - it's working well here, and I think that's going to part of a larger changeset going upstream to the wicd devs.
