"It is an article for non-experienced Linux users who wish to learn more about their system. ... Just like in part I, I try to explain how to get a couple of things done in slackware 7.0. Because this is now my favorite distribution, it is the one I use myself."

"I'll (try to) explain the following:

X configuration
kernel compilation + LILO
adding/removing users
connecting to the Internet
add a basic security to the whole thing
It's all information that you can find at many other places, but I'll try to explain it by using the tools that slackware provides."

"You need to do a lot more to really secure your system. As I said at the start of this chapter you are advised to read the Security-HOWTO."
