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 use slack-current and all is up-to-date. During the boot I see some strange error messages which I however could not find with "dmesg" or a "more /var/log/syslog" !? Why is that so? Sould not everything which happens on the screen during boot be loged in these files??? However is it some how possible to stop the screen during boot to have enough time to read these things? :-)
The way I normally look at boot time messages is to boot into the command line, instead of a GUI login screen. Then, once you have logged in, you can use the shift+PageUp keys to review the boot messages.
