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.

There is a Wine.tgz you can install with pkgtools (installpkg wine[version]. I installed on my Slackware 9.0 setup and Wine worked fine. I still had issues getting games to work, but the Wine install was flawless as far as I could tell. The slack-packed wine should be availible from linuxpackages.net. I'm all for installing from source usually, but with the complexity (for me!) of Wine I was happy to let the .tgz take care of it.
