Umm, this is a response to both of your posts; I would suggest that if you are completely new to Linux that you try something a little easier to get operational, such as Red Hat, Mandrake, or SuSE. These distributions will auto-detect more of your hardware and make it operational, plus it has more GUI-based configuration controls. Slackware is more "geek-ish" like Debian and Gentoo, and as such requires a bit more knowledge of Linux.

As for info on Linux, I get most of it by hitting the places that I get my distos from (i.e. www.gentoo.org, www.debian.org, www.debianhelp.org, www.redhat.com, etc.) and Google.
