-
-<p>In addition to the documentation provided and installable with the Slackware Linux
-Operating System, there are a vast multitude of online resources available for you to
-learn from as well.</p>
-
-<div class="SECT2">

-Official Website and Help Forums</a></h2>
-
-<p><a href="http://www.slackware.com" target="_top">The Official Slackware
-Website</a></p>
-
-<p>The Official Slackware Linux website is sometimes out of date, but still contains
-information relevant to the latest Slackware versions. At one time an active help forum
-existed there before a horde of trolls, troublemakers, and whiners descended on the
-forum. Maintaining the forum was beginning to be too much work, and so Pat shut it down.
-One can find that old forum back up and running complete with searchable archives of the
-old data at <a href="http://www.userlocal.com/phorum/"
-target="_top">http://www.userlocal.com/phorum/</a>.</p>
-
-<p>After the forums were taken down on <a href="http://slackware.com"
-target="_top">http://slackware.com</a>, several other sites sprang up that offered forum
-support for Slackware. After much thought, Pat chose to endorse <a
-href="http://www.linuxquestions.org" target="_top">www.linuxquestions.org</a> as the official
-forum for Slackware Linux.</p>

-Support</a></h2>
-
-<p>Everyone who purchases an official CD set is entitled to free installation support via
-e-mail from the developer. That having been said, please keep in mind that we, the
-developers, (and a vast majority of users) of Slackware are of &#8220;The Old
-School&#8221;. That means that we prefer to help those who have a sincere interest and
-are willing to help themselves in the process. We will always do our best to help
-everyone who emails us with support questions. However, Please check your documentation
-and the website (especially the FAQs and maybe some of the forums listed below) before
-e-mailing. You may get a faster answer that way, and the less e-mail we have to answer,
-obviously the sooner we will be of assistance to those that need it.</p>
-
-<p>The e-mail address for technical support is: <var
-class="LITERAL">support@slackware.com</var>. Other e-mail addresses and contact
-information are listed on the website.</p>

-<h3 class="SECT3"><a id="AEN535" name="AEN535">2.2.2.1 Slackware Linux Project Mailing
-Lists</a></h3>
-
-<p>We have several mailing lists, available in digest and normal forms. Check the
-instructions for how to subscribe.</p>
-
-<p>To subscribe to a mailing list, email:</p>
-
-<p><var class="LITERAL">majordomo@slackware.com</var></p>
-
-<p>with the phrase &#8220;<var class="LITERAL">subscribe <var class="REPLACEABLE">[name
-of list]</var></var>&#8221; in the body of the email. The list choices are described
-below (use one the names below for the name of the list).</p>
-
-<p>Archives of the mailing list can be found on Slackware's website at:</p>
-
-<p><var class="LITERAL">http://slackware.com/lists/archive/</var></p>
-
-<div class="VARIABLELIST">
-<dl>
-<dt><var class="LITERAL">slackware-announce</var></dt>
-
-<dd>
-<p>The <var class="LITERAL">slackware-announce</var> mailing list is for announcements of
-new versions, major updates and other general information.</p>
-</dd>
-
-<dt><var class="LITERAL">slackware-security</var></dt>
-
-<dd>
-<p>The <var class="LITERAL">slackware-security</var> mailing list is for announcements
-relating to security issues. Any exploits or other vulnerabilities directly pertaining to
-Slackware will get posted to this list immediately.</p>
-</dd>
-</dl>
-</div>
-
-<p>These lists are also available in digest format. This means that you get one large
-message per day instead of several messages throughout the day. Since the slackware
-mailing lists do not allow users to post, and the lists are such low traffic, most users
-find little advantage in the digest lists. Still, they are available if you want them by
-subscribing to <var class="LITERAL">slackware-announce-digest</var> or <var
-class="LITERAL">slackware-security-digest</var>.</p>

-<p>BSD-Specific searches. Slackware is so generic as a Unix work-a-like operating system

-to find technical help with Slackware problems. Like every Usenet newsgroup, a few
-unhelpful participants (&#8220;trolls&#8221;) can mar the experience with constant
-arguing. Learning to ignore the trolls and identifying the truly helpful people is key to
-making the most of this resource.</p>
