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.

the thing is that i have a slow dial up conection to internet so i ask a friend with ADSL and he download for me the iso images. I am interest in knowing what are in the isos cd so i can know what isos contains the apps that i may want. thanks.
If you want a distro that will start you out reasonably well from scratch, you might consider downloading the Libranet 2.7 ISO images (2 CD images). Ths software will work well right out of the box. Then you can update it, little by little. If you want something newer, Libranet 2.8 is based on recent Sarge images, but it's not free. Either one would make an excellent starting point and I hightly recommend Libranet!
Once started, you've got a Debian system with Woody or Sarge roots beneath you. Again, I recommend Libranet highly.
Originally posted by hyp_spec Strike is right, since sid/sarge are always changing, you will probably not want to download all of the ISO's since they may be dated!
Well, I just meant for the install. The daily updates aren't that bad over dialup, I'm told, except when the bigger packages get updated (biggest package I know of is 50MB or so, but that doesn't get updated very often). Most are less than a MB.
i have the source of the programs that i need. I compile and install them in Red Hat 9.
I like to know if with the first iso i will have a sistem where i can work (desktop manager, text editors, i need latex and internet conection) and can compile and install the programs i have (i mean will i have the libraries that i need for compile this programs. In red hat most of it work without any extra libraries required.)
Yes indeed. DSL is based on Knoppix. It has the Knoppix base.
But if you want to know what is there in each of the ISO s of Sid or Sarge (why Sarge - go straight to SID -they are almost the same!!), you can find it from the download mirrors.
