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 downloaded Slack 10.1 and saw from the main cd 1 boot screen that I could upgrade my installed Slack 10 by mounting my Slack partition, chmod, pkgtool-remove packages...I think. Then choose upgrade?
Now, if I have to remove all installed packages to upgrade-that's a pain since pkgtool doesn't show packages I had to build from source. I'm thinking that I upgraded my kernel to 2.4.29 and now I'd like to upgrade my IP tables from the 10.1 cd.
So, could I removed my IP tables package if I boot off the Slack 10.1 cd and then install the new IP tables from that cd?
