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.

everyone has their favs but I really think that if linux is to replace windoze then mandrake is the way to go. Ease of use and user friendly mandrake 10.1 is the best distro there is, it will get my vote everytime. If it wasnt for a couple of applications windoze would be gone off my box completely and I would have no duel boot system, just mandrake linux..
Yoper all the way. It has a reputatian as the fastest "out of the box" OS, but the new 2.2 (still in "pre" stage) is rediculous- kde loads on my 1.66 w/386 ram in about 5-8 seconds, seriously! Nvidia drivers with hardware accelerated rendering/transparency and window comp effects come default... it's amazing. It looks better than anything out there. Also, 2.6.10-2 kernel and kde 3.3.2. It uses RPM and Synaptic, and although red hat certainly has more packages available currently, a surprising amount of red hat pakages work too (its file system is very similar to red hat), although not i686/yoper "optimized." Give it some space on your HD (about 2 gigs) and you might be surprised.
