    Hi all. My name is Matt. I am a brand spanking nooby to Linux. I just installed Slackware 12.0. I have no idea what to do next. Are there any getting started tutorials? I accidentally hit enter when I was setting up my root password and now I don't know it. The cursor didn't move so I thought I had a keyboard problem. I hit tons of keys and the last key was enter so now I fear I am totally screwed. I just started my associates for programming but we won't get to anything good for awhile. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    slackware is not the best way to learn
    linux on to being with

    fedora / centos or Ubuntu :: are easy to learn on than you can move onto the more adv linux / BSD
