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.

Hehe, well, ther are some very good distros out there, and to be honest, alot of people love Gentoo for what it is: a good learning experience that offers control, and once you've got a desktop, plenty of speed.
As for the raves about PClinuxOS . . . . yep, it's all true.
Distribution: Debian 4.0, Ubuntu 6.10, Ubuntu Server 6.06
Knoppix... the only other Live-CD I've tried is Ubuntu Live. I really liked the looks (I'm not used to Gnome).
When I decided to show it to a friend who doesn't use Linux, though, he wasn't impressed at all. Neither was I!! I showed him how it'll automatically get him connected to the internet. Worked fine. I then thought, "What else can I show him?". I decided to play some of the media on his Windows partition.
That is when I discovered that Ubuntu Live cannot play MP3s out of the box.
Very unimpressive display... if only it was Knoppix, we might have a new Linux convert!
LinuxDefender is the only CD I only carry on with me @ home and @ work. It allows me to recover data, disinfect windows workstations (even NTFS partions) and to play music and frozen bubble while I set up a mail filtering relay
