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.

I admit it. through the countless versions of linux i haved used since i started with linux in middle '99, i *always* come back to slack and i do tend to think it is one of the easiest distros to use.
I just did a gentoo stage 2 instal which means i downloaded and compiled the base system. i configured the kernel and rebooted...yayyy it worked. then i tried downoading and compiling X overnight. It stuffed up, turned out gentoo's portage system does all its work in /var/cache
My /var was only 500mb so you can guess what happened. I repartitioned to make var 1000mb and now im starting the tedious and slow process all over again
but i can tell this is one hell of a great distro already.
The only distros i would never use are redhat and debian.

Middle of '99 you say? HUMPH newbies ... why I remember
back in '96, not only did you have to "roll you kernel", you had to "roll you own compiler" .... "gcc" forget it, all we had was "g" to compile......................
