Question Printable Slackware "The Book"?

Hi all, I'm getting ready to do my first Slackware install and am very pleased with such a great install guide! However, does anyone have a link to a printable version of "The Book"?

Hello there,

I would very much like to recommend shilo's guide. It started as a thread here at LQ but has now also a completely dedicated site. It's great!

Id have to second Bebo's recommendation for Shilo's guide. Very easy to follow and very informative. I have also started working a ground up guide from installing, configuring, and tweaking. Its no where close to being done yet, but its coming along nicely.

Some other good places are, and the bitbender posts.. great guides..

Very cool! Thanks gentlemen. I printed off Shilo's guide and a couple of others.

Wish me luck!
