    Well, first up- read the Slackware Book

    Just like any other book, you dont need to read the whole thing and understand it. I suggest you read thru the intro, have a peek at the Install guide and then prepare yourself. Once youve got you Install CD burnt and ready to go, chuck on a pot of coffee and slowly make your way thru the install.

    FYI- Slackware 9 is due out soon. You may want to wait a little while to save updating & general messy business with new packages etc. Ive been using linux for a few years now (almost a year that ive actively been using it though) and the thought of updating a linux system gives me a mild heat attack.
