Where next?


I just started in on Slackware (with a 2.2.15 kernel) and went through understanding how to use joe, lynx, pine and BitchX. Any suggestions as to what to tackle next?

Well, what do you intend to use this computer for ? Or what do you use computers for ?

There are thousands of uses for a computer and you can do alot of things with Linux. I mean are you wanting to learn more stuff with Linux, etc ??

Maybe start looking into some shell scripting ??

Right now I am only focusing on learning to work with the OS, as I'd never been on it until yesterday. Shell scripting sounds like a thing of the not-too-distant future though. Thanks.

you should try to update the kernel... It looks like something you might need (you have 2.2.15 and 2.2.22 is out)... It is also a nice thing to know and to do... a lot of learning possible there

good luck
