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.

The new version of Slack is on the doorstep and soon it's time to clean up my box.
What is your remote desktop server of choice?
I require a few things:
- Linux side server that starts up on boot
- Windows and linux side client
- Preferably attachable to a running desktop session, although I can live with a server that starts up X
- Semi-effortless setup on Slackware (with slackbuilds, maybe)
This far I've used x11vnc, but we don't get along all the time. I was interested to try teamviewer, but so far I didn't find information how to use it as standalone server.

I use VNC almost all the time. You can not attach to the X session that is running on the console but that does not interest me anyway. With VNC I can run X sessions 24/7, separate from anything else that may or may not be running on the box.
Slackware has tightvnc in /extra but nowadays I prefer tigervnc (http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/tigervnc/ for packages).
VNC clients are abundant. I use them on Windows, Linux, Solaris, even my Android phone.
