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 use PCLinuxOS. It is the best I've tried at hardware detection and general use. If at any time I travel (any distance), I carry a copy or three with me. Giving a copy to a person I've just met and demoed it to gives us a chance to be friends and gives them an easy to use copy of GNU/Linux. Giving a copy to a friend further cements our friendship. How can you beat that?
PCLinuxOS, my own special British English DVD version, which is so easy to create! Truly PCLOS is a great live CD but when installed you can make your own specialist Live CD. Its hardware detection makes it great for that job, consider Ruby on Rails, Amarok Live, and Karoshi (educational software system) all live CDs based on PCLinuxOS.
Distribution: OpenSUSE11.1 and Windows XP on desktop, OpenSuse 11.2 on Eee PC
Even though there has not been a new stable release in quite a while, I still enjoy using Kanotix 9(ver. 2006-1-RC4)both as a live CD and as a secondary hd install on my system. It boots up quickly, has the Debian apt utility which I love, and has a great user community.
What does it share my hd with? OpenSUSE 10.2, just to contrast the Debian system with an rpm based system.
