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'm pretty sure DSL (Damn Small Linux) can run from ram.
You're correct, you can set up a Fugal if you want (needs 50mb)or a regular Debian install (about 200 mb needed) there is also a "embedded" version that you run from inside windoze , I have never bothered to try either though.(I use it "live" only with "toram" cheatcode ) I keep my settings on a floppy http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/i...Frugal_Install
Can anyone else confirm that Scientific Linux is capable of booting toram and/or suggest any other distributions that can run completely from RAM?
Has anyone discovered a way to run any of the major distributions like Slackware, Debian, or Fedora completely from RAM?
(Actually my googling around on this question did turn up at least one answer here.)
