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.

View Poll Results: LiveCD Distribution of the Year
I like knoppix the most of all the live CD distros as it is really good in times when things are going wrong with other distros.
But I like SuSE also for it detects the devices easily and also plays mp3
I voted Knoppix because it is (was?) the foundation for most of the other liveCD distro.
Now klik is one of the best thing to have happened to Knoppix imho.
However, it still feels a bit rough on the edges. It could use a lot more polish. This is why I usually remaster my own, with a couple of things that can not be redistributed on the main CD (nvidia, mscorefonts, mplayer, w32-codecs, giFT+apollon etc...)
It's so easy to customize (if you know debian), so there goes my vote!
With all of these listed, only one has worked on all of my systems, NET BSD live. It's not pretty, but it sure does work. I even got it to work on an outdated gateway laptop that has a physical memory leak. There aren't too many distros that will work no matter what. This brings to mind a good idea for testing live cd's.
