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.

My school recently acquired a goldmine (or landmine...) of several ancient decommisioned military laptops. They have 2.2 GB HDs, 166 MHz Pentiums, and 32MB of RAM. Easy: install Linux. Problem: the tech director at my school currently uses a Windows network and is a Mac addict, and wants to start with Win98 on these and upgrade to 2000. That's terrifying to me. Unfortunately, I can't exactly put OS X on these, although I really can't touch the hard drives (which are wiped clean) anyway. My thought was to get a LiveCD distro and show how easily a minilab of these could be set up, but I don't know which one is best for these. Could someone reccomend one, or maybe just tell me to get a real distro (no offense to LiveCDs) and install it temporarily?
