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.

Suse. Excellent, works with most hardware out of the box and I'm loving Yast. Its repository system is just as good as any. Especially with Packman. I can find just about anything theres an rpm for.Everything is installable from one sitting. Dependecies are automatically checked for and downloaded/installed.
Hello, first post.
Well, I'm not new with Linux, but for my new computer Fedora Core was the only one (as far I've tested) that recognized my SATA HD. Well knoppix did it as well, but the graphical setup for dummies was a pleasure.
Distribution: Debian Based only but have tried most others.
Once you go .deb you never go back!! Debian has great documentation, better than redhat anyday. Great Package managment, better than rpm even with the deb/rpm clones.
At first Debian may seem a little to much for some people because they can't have what the feel is a perfect system in 10 minutes. But trust me, if you have to run an I.T. Department Debian servers are a dream come true. Basically I can do anything I want and once you make your "prefect" setup, tools like mondoarchive allows me to duplicate it everywhere. I was able to upgrade 20+ remote servers to Sarge from woody without any real problems. I can't even upgrade windows 2000 to 2003 while sitting in front of the computer without problem, let alone just using ssh hundred miles away!
In the business enviroment I just can't think of a better system. I have replaced all my windows servers and redhat servers with Debian and I have more reliablity, quicker configuration, more options and software that allow me to replace other items like routers and firewalls. If Debian was hot I would marry it!
