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'm a new Slackware user for 1 month, and it work fine, I'm really happy of it.
But I still have one issue that I cannot fix. It's about nm-applet, I really need it to connect on the wifi network of my school. I tried with wicd, but I think the configuration of the wifi isn't available on it.
Anyway, I want to use NetworkManager with nm-applet. I'm using xfce, and when I execute nm-applet I get this message :
nm-applet: error while loading shared libraries: libORBit-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So I searched and it's about libgnome library, but there is tooooo much dep for libgnome (on slackbuild.org).
But my question is nm-applet must be able to lauch on default install, right?
If yes, why I cannot execute it?
It appears to be looking for ORBit-2, which one would think would be included with the "Kitchen Sink" install of Slackware since the NetworkManager applet for Xfce has been added, but I can't find it in the package list.
You can find it here, http://download.salixos.org/

It's difficult to determine where you're "at" in terms of the configuration end of things. I'm curious as to why wicd wouldn't work, etc., and what you've done to get to the point of running nm-applet.
So I'll assume that, as root, you've done this, or similar:
Looking for libgnutls in package list. Please wait... DONE
The list below shows the packages that contains "libgnutls.so.26" file.
[ installed ] - gnutls-3.0.23-x86_64-1
You can search specific packages using "slackpkg search package".
It appears you don't have gnutls installed, which is a part of a full installation. Because you do not have libgnutls.so.26, and therefore the gnutls package, you did not do a full install.
