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'm having trouble finding the iso files for the full install of Fedora 15 on CD. Lots of ways to get the DVD but no CDs. Fedora docs say it is out there (http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...new-users.html) but if so, it seems to be hidden fairly well. Anyone have a link?
DVDs are not considered very important : Fedora is a development OS.
And has thousands of updates in its short life : 13 months.
Many of the packages on the release DVD may be outdated :
Todays count, Fedora 15 : 4825 updates.
Thanks for the responses. I guess I should have included some more information. I am going to make a minimal install (text only) on an old desktop. It has a CD drive but no DVD. It also doesn't have the memory to support any of the Live spins. I would like to use Fedora because of the availability of RPM based packages rather than source builds.
I guess if the CD isos aren't available, I'll try another distro like DSL.
Ooooooooooh, okay...how about the new Knoppix?
Alternatively, I'd install the Live CD, and tweak-out the graphical desktop. You'll need to set the /etc/inittab up in such a way, the desktop will not even get stared. Just set the box in runlevel 3...
Best of both worlds: CDrom as carrier, and no desktop, and RPM's...how cool is that?
And, if you're up to is, try either TTYlinux, of Tiny core...of course, if you need a quick and clean one, I can recommend MacPup...barely needs a PC...
