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.

Search on forums turns up no helpful results... just to let you guys know before hand so you dont think i didnt do some work before i asked a question =)
Well mh question might not be quite so quick lol...
I'm using SLAMD64 11.0
I have an ASUS A8N-e Mobo, with sci raid drivers, and intel raid drivers, both are windows drivers though. I have set up through my motherboard a RAID 1 of two Maxtor Raptor drives.
When I boot up linux, it see's one of the drives, and its labeled as 34g (their both 34g).. but it isnt seeing the other drive.
How do I get slackware to install onto my raid correctly?
Im wanting to partition it correctly so that I can have linux swap and all that stuff on my raid. if they wernt 10,000rpm drives i wouldnt bother with this, but i really want the speed increase.
From what ive turned up in my searches, i have to install it onto another drive first, then copy it over to a software raid... which is an option, but i dunno how to partition the raid and copy things correctly, such as /home to a seperate partition.
First get youself a install-hosting hdd for the normall install and do trough...
then set up the raid following the documentation found :
# locate Raid
print the interesting READMEs and come back with a story?
May be there is a raid howto on the CD's already?
