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 see that Slackware 10.2 now supports a 2.6.13 kernel so I can use my S-ATA drives and other features of an advanced PC. I tried 10.1 Slackware and did not have good luck at all and moved to Debian. I would now like to try Slackware 10.2 again but was wondering after I have all 4 ISO's burned to CD, is there a guide that will walk me through the set up of partitioning and installing on my 120GB S-ATA drive?
best place to look is in the stickies at the top of this forum. I think there is a very thorough install guide there that walks you through it step-by-step. It's very good and should work for you no problem.
EDIT: the thread is titled "This is how i do it all"

At least in 10.2, the install explains itself fairly well in the readme's as you go. A guide is definitely more thorough, I guess, especially if you're really new to all of the hardware-related decisions you end up making, but for me at least it was a smooth process guide-less.
