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.

Australia was great when I visited there in 1969. Bet it's still great. Nice to know Windows is looked down upon around the globe and Mister Bill lives in my state(Washington). What are Australian geekgirls Like ?
Mandriva Powerpack 2007 is excellent. DVD player included in package. Printers recognized and installed without any problem. I did not have to install Java Runtime Environment to use the Database in Open Office 2.
Slack ofcourse. I have been hooked to Slack since the first time I tried it. Gentoo seems promising but they say its heck of a challenge to configure it right the very first time. I am not giving up on gentoo and nor on slack either. Slack ROCKS!
Slackware is my distro of choice but i can't ignore the fact that ubuntu and it's many flavors are getting better by giant leaps ....so i voted ubuntu...but then again it is based on debian...hummmm.....should have voted debian...but again slackware is the one i am more comfortable with....go figure
PCLinuxOS, the only distro of the 7 or so I've tried (big and small), which hasn't wasted hours of my time. It's been trouble-free and, combined with Xfce, outdoes any of the others. Still, there are several hundred I haven't tried.
