Shilo, firstoff, a BIG thank you for this guide. This is just what i need. But em, i seem to get lost in linux. Could someone write the tree structure of Slackware? I've heard it's one of the few distros that still uses the original one.

I'm only asking since i want to check every directory, and check every conf file...etc. I love tweaking and there plenty of that on Slackware.

Thanks in advance,

Slycer

USB Pen Devices

Hi!
Lot of compliments for this guide!

You coud also tell people to add this line to /etc/fstab

Code:
/dev/sda1        /mnt/usbpen      vfat        noauto,owner,user           0   0
and add the /mnt/usbpen directory the users will be able to muont an usb device (pen or something else)
as they usually do with file sistems.

Or, better, automounting via hotplug. I never try this yet!


Keep on the good work!

Bye and happy Christmas


Fabio Italy

Is there a way to print this out as one file? Is there a PDF available? I checked Shilo's website but there's lots of links but I want a easy page to easily print out! Thanks.

css printing for shilo

For Shilo:

as reported by some users printing the guide html pages is not easy,
because also navigation will be printed.

So i made this little css only for printing:

Code:
body{
	color: black;
	background-color: white;
	font-size: 12pt;
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
}

a {
	color: black;
	background-color: transparent;
	text-decoration: none;
}

a[href]:after {  /* Prints the links' URIs after the links' texts. Doesn't work in MSIE */
	content: "<" attr(href) ">";
	font-size: 90%;
	padding-left: 1ex;
}

ul.navbar 		{display:none;}

/* Hide the navigation header and footer; I'm not sure to print this or not.*/
div.navfooter, div.navheader {display:none;}
if you want to use it replace this line on every xhtml file:
Code:
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css" />
with
Code:
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="styles.css" />
		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" href="print.css" />
Bye!

slackware 10.*

I was reading your install guide and I have a couple of questions.
The last time I had linux contact was 1.1.13 or somewhere thereabout.
Does this new version auto configure to your computers hardware? and
does it auto recognize cable modems? and If it does not maybe I did not
see how to make it recognize the cable modem. Like I said its been a very
long time since I've had a linux box, thanks in advance.
