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.

on http://distrowatch.com/ puppy linux is #17 , man puppy linux users regard Puppy as a icon, almost to a god status. now don't you think this should be on the list??? and Myah is just a nice full feature , graphical install distro. which should get more air time...
fedora 6 is much better than 5. there are issues with my laptop(Compaq Presario M2253AU), the ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics card seriously breaks up (sometimes after a yum update)requiring a reboot. Another big problem is the microphone input, sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn't. Not being able to use skype is a real hassle!! the audio configuration utility simply doesn't cut it!!
Anyway i hope fedora 7 will address the VGA and sound issues on my hardware otherwise i will consider another distribution. overall though i am a fedora fan!! i will stick with it for a while and see what happens.
I run Slack as a VM to remember my roots, but I've yet to find a distro that goes on my T60 as smooth as FC6. Having ADS, thinkpad buttons, and wireless(kinda kinda works) right off the plastic is nice.
