The Slack World - the Slack World is a website dedicated to providing information and entertainment related to Slackware.

alt.os.linux.slackware - Usenet group for Slackware - be sure to read the FAQ, as it covers more than just A.O.L.S. topics.

AlphaGeek - alphageek (see #slackware on the oftc IRC network) maintains an unofficial mirror list (as well as a few other things) on his site.

Other Useful Stuff

My HOWTO Page - Just in case you didn't already see it... - the Filesystem Heirarchy Standard (FHS)- good resource. - the official registry of allocated device numbers and /dev directory nodes for Linux. Note that this document is considered to be unmaintained and thus is likely deprecated in some places.

Mirror of - This has a good explanation of why the file exists and how it {is, can be} useful. - Daniel Drake's excellent work on how to write udev rules. This is included with the udev source tarballs (and in /usr/doc/udev-$VERSION on Slackware systems), but the newest version is always available on his site.

Netfilter/iptables Documentation - this is the documentation provided by the netfilter / iptables project. If you're looking for an introductory tutorial, see Oskar Andreasson's tutorial.
