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.

Slackel is a live system based on Slackware and usually ships in Openbox and KDE editions. Today the Slackel crew announced their latest, Slackel Live KDE-4.10.4. "A collection of two KDE live iso images are immediately available that can be burned to a DVD or used with a USB drive." Slackel KDE-4.10.4 Live is based on the current tree of Slackware and features Linux 3.9.5, KDE 4.10.4, Xorg X Server 1.13.4, GCC 4.8.1, and Firefox 21.0. It also includes lots of other software like Clementine, VLC, and the Calligra office suite too, as well as a long list of configuration tools. I didn't see one for installing proprietary graphic though (although, that doesn't guarantee it doesn't exist). So assuming it's really not there, it looks like we may have to install them the old-fashioned way because Slackel uses nouveau for NVIDIA chips by default.
