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 think it is possible to install Knoppix on a hard disk, I wouldn't know the procedure off the top of my head tho. I'm pretty sure I saw a number of threads on this in the Debian forum (Knoppix is Debian based) so you might want to look there.
Depends on the version. I know the version 4 and abvove has an icon on the desktop for clicking HD-installer. Earlier versions have a script called "knoppix-installer". You just drop into a Bash shell, type
Many distros based on Knoppix but have no obvious installer also answer the above call.
knoppix is a great live distro. But even the designer suggests looking at a real Debian distribution before installing knoppix to hard drive (and I agree with that from having done both). Try Debian Sarge. Either two CDROMs or two DVDs. Best distro.
