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.

Yea, TW00 was right.
Run swaret --update, that updates swaret if you dont have the latest version, then modify your swaret.conf file in /etc to read version=current then run --upgrade -a, The a automates the install, If you want to upgrade the kernel to 2.4.26 you need to modify the swaret.conf file and uncomment the EXCLUDE=kernel line, its about half way down the file. On mine, the dependency checking was on by default though.
Sorry if this doesn't help, but I thought that you might like it. Sometimes, you have downloaded the .iso files but don't want to have to burn them to cd to use them. If that is the case, check out http://jmccoy.sdf-us.org/slackware9/other/mountiso.php . It gives you the commands to mount the .iso file without having to burn it. You can then upgrade your packages from there. There is also a file, I believe it is called upgrade.txt , on the .iso that you can follow if you want to upgrade from 9.1 to 10 . I had some trouble with it. If you have a cd burner, my recommendation is to burn everything that you need onto cd (/etc , /home) and do a fresh install of Slackware 10. It was the easiest solution for me.
