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.

thanks for the suggestions, I've tried all of them and settled on PAGER=most in terminal, and konqueror in X. There's another method using vim as pager, via add-on scripts not shipped by default with slackware. whichman is another package to use for searching keywords in man pages, while w3m (text console www browser similar to lynx) can be used to view man pages in terminal as well.
