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.

See the Changelog for a list of changes and for a list of those that helped with it.
Thank you my friend, for sure you helped, and not just a little, but a lot, I'll look into it. I want to have a Slackware system build for me, just like gentoo, but the thing is that I am an Slacker , I even bought the subscription.
Anyways, thanks a lot for your answer, I'll look into all those packages/scripts that you mentioned, thank a lot, have a nice day.
If you have downloaded or purchaesd the Slackware set of all four discs, you will find the source tarballs on discs three and four within the a-x directories. Uisng these and the live cd - disc 2 or a basic Slackware installation on a seperate partition, you can build whatever Slackware system you want to, in the same way as a Linux Ffrom Scratch system.
