Where is the ultimate tutorial?


Where can I find a one webpage (not a web site where you have to find all different webpages and print them seperatly) tutorial on Slackware? I want to learn how to install it, how to use LILO, what all the different directories mean (bin, sbin, dev) and other stuff about Slackware. And I don't want to pay for it. Where can I find this? Thanks.

Most of the things you're asking about aren't specific to Slackware, so I'd recommend RUTE. It's probably the most thorough Linux tutorial out there.

Only one problem for me, I am unable to get into the www.bitbendersforums.com from South Africa, have been trying since Oct. 2004 without any success. I have tried from diffrent machines, web-cafe's the lot no go at all. All the places give the same error gateway/time_out.

I would really appreciate if some kindly soul could mail me the printer friendly version of Grogans post on the topic.

TIA

You might also find the Slackware Linux Essentials book useful.

Hi egag...
My most humble apologies for not including my mail address, you can reply to me at catman518@yahoo.co.uk

Hi AxelFendersson

I have looked at the book, just wish I could get a hard copy of it here in South Africa, or the whole thing in some sort of document form that I could download and have printed.

Most of the book shops that I have been to do not stock much in the way of Linux. As I do not have a credit card I am unable to purchase books from most of the on-line book stores.

But a plan will have to be made to remedy this!
