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.

if the guy is just blatantly selling CDR's burnt with the mandrake ISO files then that's fine, i think it becomes potentnailly dubious if he's trying to pass them off as auhentic, which would be a silly thing to do anyway
if the distro is downloaded off the interenet and burnt to cd,s , one thing to note is that it will differ in that if you won,t get the applications cd, i believe it only comes with mandrakes retail version. i am waiting for mandrake 9 powerpack to released, hoping soon
Buy the distro from MDK official shop, then you can get their support. but maybe a little expensive. Download and resell their distro is legal. You needn't to worry about it.
To me, $9 is very expensive, and I would not buy it. I perfer to downloading it over FTP.
One blank CD-R cost almost 0.2$, if you buy much more it will be more cheap .I bought 100 pieces cost about 14$. Use your money carefully!
