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.

While I'm very interested in Linspire, I have taken the plunge also with SuSE and have a proliferation of Live CDs including the one of Sun JDS put out by the UK monthly magazine LinuxUser Issue 36.
It is an absolute delight to use, and the only problem I have with it is that Sun's policy in Australia is for the large corporate user... with (from what I gather) no intention at present to make it available for us lesser mortals lol!
I'm wondering if there is a way, like with Knoppix, to install to HDD so that a decent sort of evaluation can be made?
Added as an afterthought... Yes Jeremy, much appreciated

Thankyou Tom. I'll do that. In the meanwhile an associated quickie...
It has several references while booting, think I saw Morphix, and the obvious SuSE "Bienvenu" etc screen, etc... but looking at the CD, there is no directory structure like on the Morphix and Knoppix ones... I suspect it is unarchived on the fly which makes it rather difficult I suspect. However will go visiting... and yes I found that site from various links of posts in here too, thanks.
