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.

smp and hyperthreading?
Having just spent a day getting rid of the sasser worm on my "other" computer I'm ready to switch it over to Slackware. I've been using it with much success on my laptop, compiled kernels, configured everything multiple times etc. so I'm pretty comfortable doing it. My only question is do I want to use SMP support for a p4 3.4 with hyperthreading. The hyperthreading acts like two processors but would linux treat it as such?
I'm going to assume you probably have a SATA only drive on that thing.... Slackware won't even boot to the install prompt if thats the case... Go over to Linuxiso.org in their slack forum and check out a thread there. Should still be on the first page. Download and make 3 boot disks with your laptop and use them to get the install going on the new computer. Well, just read that thread. It's all there..
Keep an eye on your dmesg for Losing too many ticks! If you start to see this. Recompile your kernel and change a few timer settings. I had this problem w/ 2.6.6 RC1. It made the computer behave in very strange ways. Otherwise I love my p4 w/ HT (2.8 OCed to 3.0Gz)
