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'm trying to find a wireless management gui tool that I can use with my clients' laptops. Kwifimanager does not work on these systems, and I have been unable to get NetworkManager to compile. Any ideas, or has anyone gotten one of these programs to work well on Slackware (10.2, 2.6.13)?
yes - i am yet to get any of these apps to work properly.. i can be connected to a LAN fine and transferring data and kwifi indicates that card is idle... I think i have since uninstalled it as i thought it sucked =)
kinternet seems to be suse-specific...couldn't find any sources
So I tried wlassistant first and BINGO, it works. Lightweight, install was effortless (just needed to symlink one library), on launch it automatically (and accurately) found the networks around me. Connecting and disconnecting to networks actually worked, too, including encrypted ones. This looks promising!
I haven't taken the time yet to install Wifi-Radar, but I will eventually.
