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.

Also, think about what you are doing. If you just did a fresh install of Slackware 10.2, what are you hoping to upgrade. Slackware 10.2 was just released on 9/13/2005, and there have been no updates to it since then.
Originally posted by jiawj in additional, I find the slackpkg can not backup exist config-file such as /etc/ssh/sshd_config when you upgrade your pkg,
all of my pkg's conf-file was gone after upgrading.
Slackpkg/pkgtool doesn't automatically overwrite your config files unless you tell it to do so. It prompts you for what you want to do with new config files. If you chose to overwrite them, that's your fault, not the program's fault. That's exactly why it prompts you.

Sorry, I test slackpkg upgrade again , It's certain prompt whether or not overwrite exist conf-file.
I'm careless before.
