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.

Here are the limitations of my system. Its Pentium 2 with only 32 mb of Ram. It runs at 333 mhz with a formatted 8 gb harddrive. I need something that installs easily and can get on the internet with a wireless nic. Any and all suggestions appreciated.
Regardless of which distro you decide upon, if your budget can afford it, installing more RAM would make a huge difference. Of course, whether or not it would be worthwhile upgrading an older laptop is another consideration, but assuming that you will be using it frequently, it could be a good call. Good luck with it -- J.W.
Yeah dude, more ram would make your computing experience much mcuh better, 256mb of ram is real cheap now.
But if you dont feel like upgrading ur comp than I would suggest vector or slack. Also to make your comp run smoother and quicker I would stay away from GUI's like Gnome and KDE. I would go with Fluxbox. Gnome and KDE would overload your laptop.
