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.

I agree with a previous poster that Puppy linux should have been listed. With the gobs of live cd's out these days, so many are simply me-too live cds. Puppy is very unique, and lives up to its goals...I have run puppy successfully on an ancient thinkpad - p1 177 with 32MB. I have to credit win98 that it ran fairly well with that old beast.
For newer computers - kanotix and Mepis are great. Mepis is certainly more focused on HD install, but I have installed kanotix to HD several times with good results. I ended up voting for kanotix - because I think of Mepis's livecd feature more as a preview, and because Puppy wasn't even listed!
Slax is the best because you if you get the MySlax creator it can make your Slax live cd into any thing i have about 5 cd's one is a mail server for a company that i can run from any computer one is a desktop, and i have another one that is a PVR for my computer and the rest are different Servers (Web, etc) i also like the way slax runs and boots quicky and has that web server where u can save ur things too.
I read some nice self-claims from ARCHIE and I really like ARCH's fastness. So I downloaded this ARCHIE, and tried to test it on the live cd. Yes, it worked. But, but, when I logged out, I could not log into my workstation any more!
So I put the live CD back.
You know what? It did not work either!
I called my friend, he said that the network card might be bad. But how could be a hardware destroyed by the software? He could not answer me. Later, we found out that ARCHIE changed my network adapter! I un-installed it, put my orinigal one into the system; hoping it would solve the problem. No, no, no!
The last rescue is to call IT expert who cleaned my pc compltetely.....
