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.

OK I have installed Slackware 10.1 with the 2.4 kernel and i now want to upgrade in order to gain support for my wireless card. Can someone provide me with a walkthrough or a link to a guide that will tell me how to upgrade?thanks
Look at the thread "This is how I do it all" by shilo.
Another thing to do is do a google search for "compile 2.6 kernel slackware" (Or something like that).
And if you download and untar the version you want to compile, there is a file called 'README' that gives you the basics.
There are a lot of them out there, you just need to look for them.
