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.

Bleeding edge, I understand that in three directions:
1) like distros with packages compiled for 686-32 like crux, frugalware or arch (there are others, surely).
2) distros for 686-64 (Centos, Mepis, Mandriva, etc.).
3) distros under a working model that compiles every software package to your specific processor/s platform: gentoo, sourcemage, lunar, ututo etc.
But, yet, you have another hardware platforms like 64-bit PowerPC (Yellowdog 64). Gentoo ppc64 is very bleeding edge under that perspective. You don't want it to be named, but there have been a lot of bleeding people there in gentoo ppc64. :P
EDIT to add: And yet I forgot Debian Hurd. Which cannot be called a "linux" distro. Too much bleeding edge.
