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.

After trying 4 different distros, I finally found one that recognizes my printer and gives me a fully functioning system - PCLinuxOS 0.93. Everything else in this distro works perfectly, so it gets my vote.
Its the little Steam Engine that could. I like how easy it is to create customized versions of Puppy. It keeps getting better all the time. I still haven't installed it on my hard drive because saving back to the disc works just great(o.k. I lied somewhat. I do use the hard drive for swap and configuration storage - but no full blown install). Puppy is small, fast, and customizable. For those of you who like a little more eyecandy or find their desktop enviroment lacking try Muppy or Mean Puppy. Best way to Users Remasters is too checkout the Announce page in the forums or do a search for a particular Remaster. I believe the Main Website has a section that list some of the more Popular Remastered Puppies.

I'd say SimplyMepis and PCLinuxOS because they're multimedia ready.
When my computer's off coughnevercough and I want to look up something online real quick instead of booting a more bloated distro, I use Puppy Linux or a Kiosk Cd (browser only live distro). Check out LiveKiosk for instance.
The Fedora liveCD, while I like Fedora, is real slow on my system.
