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 myself have not tried (I just don't like RPM distros), but the last time it was based on Fedora was with Fedora 14, after that they forked it and became an independent distro. AFAIK, Fufunto is a rolling release distro, so not quite the same as Fedora.
My Fuduntu is on my USB 2 Hdd,
I can use it to boot from my Notebook (intel core i5, intel HD3000 VGA), and also
desktop (AMD Athlon 64, ATI Radeon 3000),
different hardwares, but both give full resolutions.
No hardware conflict!
The only thing is it has no printer driver for my Fuji Xerox Workcenter 3119.
If Slackware, Fedora and Fuduntu were the only available distro's you would run Slackware; wouldn't you TobiSGD?
Of course I would, but I also run Slackware with 600+ other available distros, i don't see a reason why that should change if you reduce the 600+ to 2.
You have your reasons and I respect that but wonder how come? And;
I always felt RPM to be somewhat clunky. Can't say why, but i just think that the APT package management is superior by far, when it comes to dependency resolving managers.
Does Slackware have it's own tools/utilities and you find them much more efficient than RPM distro's?
Slackware has a whole set of different package management tools. The package format of Slackware is simple and straight forward, I can built a Slackware package of a compiled source with a single command in 5 seconds, for RPM or DEB you have to study a whole book to get the package format and how to build a proper package.
As always, Slackware's adherence to KISS principles makes work for the user much easier.
