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 did a fresh 32-bit installation of 14.1 yesterday, omitted all DEs and WMs, and then installed cwm from SlackBuilds. I also omitted consolekit and policykit from the installation, in the interest of reducing unneeded processes. A nice, fresh, clean, non-bloated setup...
Tkhearts? Never heard of that. Is there a Slackware package around for that?
Actually no. I happened to find it looking for a hearts game for Linux. The hearts also happened to come sorta bundled with a few other tk games. Unfortunately I don't remember where I found it and I don't know how to make it/them into slackware packages, but just setting up an icon in the menu or on the desktop and pointing it to the tkhearts shell script and it starts up faster than any other app on my system. Almost immediately. Can't change screen size on it, but so far it's big enough and doesn't mess with my eyes.
If you want, PM me and I can e-mail you the directory tarballed with everything I found.
