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've only tried it out; I couldn't use it because it doesn't support my sound chip.
The documentation for CentOS was useful, particularly the information about setting up the EPEL and RPMFusion repositories, and using yum-priority so that they don't compromise the stability of your system. Otherwise, it was all much the same as using Fedora (and presumably RHEL).
Yes, I have SL6 installed on a spare computer (though I don't use it every day). As you probably know, it is in the family of Red Hat/CentOS and therefore is very well documented and supported. Let us know if you have specific questions, enjoy!
I have installed it, I may have a few questions should I post them in this forum or is there another location that is preferred?
If the question is likely to be need knowledge of SL in particular, posting in the Red Hat section of Distributions is probably best. If it's about something that anyone could answer, put it in the appropriate section, like Hardware or Software.
