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.

One thing that would be very nice: an rc.dhcpcd startup script for the included DHCP server. It seems like the "recommended" solution is dnsmasq, but for SOHO networks, I much prefer a classical DHCP-plus-Bind approach. It's no big deal, as I've written one myself, but it would be one less thing to worry about.
My suggestion would be to trim kde to a core installation now that it has been explowded...and offer the applications as extras. Slackware is now an excellent base to use xfce and kde with what ever applications you choose!
