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.

.....and would anyone give me a link or write instructions for me to set up a dual boot between windows and slackware? From beginning to end? Or as best you can if not from beginning to end.

Distribution: Ubuntu / ITOS2008
I think hardware wise that everything is supported. No one will give you instructions you are looking for here. Search the forums and you'll find other threads with instructions, or go over to slackware.com and read the on-line book that has a step by step install guide.
http://www.linux-usb.org/USB-guide/book1.html can get you started with the USB stuff. As for the other stuff, most should be supported like NSKL said if not all of it. As for the Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection I am positive that will be picked up when netconfig runs in the setup, because I run a card on the same series. Also with the dual booting, just need to install lilo on the mbr for best results. that should take care of most of it. Check out this link for installation instructions of slack via the slackware.com book.
I'm not 100% on the USB controller, but it will almost definately handle its 1.1 aspects, everything else: yes.
After installing 8.1 you may want to download and use upgradepkg to install the fixed glibc, sshd, but most importantly the switch up to XFree86 4.2.1 which added a little more support for the radeons.
You will have to configure X on your own, Slack and Debian leave it up to you, so look up the Vert and Horz on that monitor.
And if something doesn't work, it wouldn't have worked with any other 2.4.18 based distro either, its all in the kernel... also, you're going to have to make it work... and upgrading kernels is easy!
