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.

This Is So Awesome!!!!
This is awesome! I've never heard of booting an OS from a CD before! They say you can boot from the hard drive if you want to, does anyone prefer that and y cuz im not sure if i should. And also does DSL support .deb files?
Quite a few distros can run just from a CD, floppy or flash drive. I find such methods useful for testing distros or for system recovery. I am sure distrowatch, has an extensive list of such distributions.
I run DSL as a "poorman's" install. I copied the contents of the CD onto a partition and use my existing grub to boot it.
This runs in basically the same manner as a liveCD, except that it's a bit faster and the cdrom is free.
DSL supports deb files, with the addition of a dsl-dpkg.dsl extension. I think you can automatically download and install it with the "enable apt" menu item.
