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.

@onebuck, I've followed your link, and now whenever loading any page on Mozilla it freezes up, help me :S
Here's output btw:
Slackware package maker, version 3.14159.
Searching for symbolic links:
usr/share/pixmaps/flash-player-properties.png -> ../icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/flash-player-properties.png
Making symbolic link creation script:
( cd usr/share/pixmaps ; rm -rf flash-player-properties.png )
( cd usr/share/pixmaps ; ln -sf ../icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/flash-player-properties.png flash-player-properties.png )
Unless your existing installation script already contains the code
to create these links, you should append these lines to your existing
install script. Now's your chance. :^)
Would you like to add this stuff to the existing install script and
remove the symbolic links ([y]es, [n]o)? y
Removing symbolic links:
Updating your ./install/doinst.sh (prepending symlinks)...
This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!
Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n
