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.

How do you take screenshots in slackware 13? PRint Screen dosen`t work
Here's how I do screenshots:
Then type in that box:
xwd | convert - ~/scr.png
This will take a snapshot of the entire active window, and you will have a scr.png in your /home/yourname directory. The scr.png is just a name for the ensuing file - you may use any name you wish with the .png extension.
The resulting image may be too large to upload, or you just may want to reduce it for other use - even an avatar.
So to reduce the image, do this:
convert -geometry 800x600 /home/yourname/scr.png
This is an example. The size can be anything you want. You can also use .jpg instead of .png.
