Is this a good tutorial?


Hi!

I'm a technically challenged user, trying to set up Slackware (trying to learn some stuff and have a very stable desktop). What i was meaning to ask is: Is this a good tutorial? (because it's easier for me to memorise it via screenshots...)

Thank you!

It is a bit outdated, some screens have changed since December 15, 2006.

I would recommend reading Installation HOWTO included in the CD or DVD of the distribution, though it doesn't include screenshots.

thank you! Will try.

I was just struggling to find something with screens, i'm more of a visual person, so i thought to go ahead and ask, since i've seen it's not for 13.37

Thanks for your help


edit: btw, wahat's the font in the howto you posted. I printed it out and it looks fantastic. Very readable!

The most comprehensive tutorial out there is the slackbook, it even got some screenshots: for an up-to-date version, have a look at the beta.

Look at: Slackware Help

Two good references SlackwareŽ Essentials & SlackwareŽ Basics.

Another useful resource would be 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
