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 have a lot of experience with Gentoo but I need something super-small I can run entirely from within a ramdisk on the 256MB Beaglebone. Can anyone recommend a super-small distro with good ARM support? I'm trying Tiny Core now but ARM support is new and I have yet to make it work 100%.
It would be difficult to get better than a home-rolled Debian based set. It depends upon your limits and criteria beyond what you have posted.
I fully expect Tiny-Core to become the best Live-Mini option in this space, but it may take some time. While waiting, there is significant ARM support in several distributions. Debian is the best that I use, but I only use a small subset of what is available.
