Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I like Knoppix too. It was responsible for getting me interested in Linux in the first place,
After years of Windows use, I saw somewhere on the Net, that you could buy a CD, not touch your hard-dsik and have Linux up and running from the CD only! I thought coming from Windows WOW! So I tried it. Sure enough 5 minutes after popping CD in, I was checking email and surfing!
That did it for me! Knoppix is responsible for me getting into Linux. Now I love it.
At the moment I am using SuSE 8.2, but if their licensing is going to get more restrictive then I will get the latest Knoppix and use it to install Debian.
I have tried no other distributions, just Knoppix, Debian (a little) and SuSE.
I starting my linux campaign with Suse 8.2 and would recommend it to anyone starting out. Installation was a breeze, but after tinkering with it for a few months and getting nowhere with the rpms i choose to go for broke and try something a little more daring.(Debian was its name and apt was its game). Ever since i have found it superb so i voted for it. Mainly because of apt and it's general phillosophy of keeping in with the spirit of Free software. What a radical eh!!!
