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.

Distribution: Pink Tie 9 (Red Hat 9 clone from CheapBytes.com)
but it wasn't a very good list to start with and "other" got lots of votes! there are more and more live distros and while some people obviously don't like them i think we'll see more and more people get their first taste of linux from these...
the appearance of a Damn Small Linux forum in the Distro forum (in the last half hour) shows that there is considerable interest in live stuff. Bit surprised there isn't a Knoppix forum yet!
One other thing: generally speaking i think some differentiation between distro "types" might be good in the future. e.g. at the mo, in best distro, you have Vector and Slack, now obviously, Vector is Slack but they are different...not really sure what i am suggesting...anyone with me?
bah if you're to hide the results, there will be no motivation to come back until the end.
Maybe you could ask for a special feature for vBulletin (or develop it ?) : showing results only 1 time out of 100 views for the lucky one, this will increase the interest (and the load on your server...)
well, hiding is not the way open source should go ;-)
