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.

"boot: slax acpi=off" worked! i got into gui okay...
next problem: network and mouse. i have a logitech mouse connected to USB. i went to control center > peripherals > mouse, but it froze. i suppose that doesn't matter because i can use the touchpad easily enough...
i'm not sure how i should configure the wireless network... the 'wizard' looks different than what i've seen. so, at this point, i don't know how you can help me. but thanks very much for the tips above.
I have no idea what to do about your usb mouse, I don't have one.
As to your wireless nic, Slax has no problems autoconfiguring for the cards in my desktop and my wife's laptop. Curious that yours won't.
