Knowing a Linux distro is one asset of a network administrator, since then I seemed to be a die hard fan of knowing Linux. The first linux distro I used was Red Hat and from the first time I saw it I was so amazed and at the same time surprised that such operating system exist. By then I was a great fan of linux but sad to say I seldomly use the operating system because most of the tools used in school and work is windows based, though it can be ran through wine but running it in windows is different.
Lately, my friends and colleagues installed a transparent proxy used for filtering sites accessed within the network. They explained to me how the proxy functions and it was a very big interest to me especially that linux was involved.
This was also a coincidence that in the previous week I was able to download the latest version of Slackware Linux v13.O. I tried to install it but facing it in text based is something new to me because the previous flavors of linux I used comes with a graphical user interface making it easy for me to install and configure stuff.
So the first step I made was finding an ebook for slackware and I got lucky that surfing deeper in the net I found version 2 of Slackware. Since the resources is so scarce I decided to upload the ebook here and have an easy download for it to help also others and have them a reference. So if this is also your first time to start with Linux Slackware, let us journey together in finding the power of Linux Slackware in Network administration. Hoping that we can share ideas on how to improve communication a lot safer and a lot faster. Below is the link where you can download the ebook.
