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 had managed to download a copy of kali mini which was a copy from 2013. I had burned the iso to a CD-RW disc, when I had it booted it stated about installing it on the current 32 bit XP machine I have.
So that wasn't a live version? I just want to be able to run it off the cd. Is that something that will work, especially if I'm using a tenda wifi adapter to connect to a network. A USB adapter that is.
I don't have access at the moment to another system running 512mb of RAM, a pentium 4. So the current system I'm using is the main system, as for a storage disc I don't own one with several GB of capacity.
So a live cd would be the only realistic option for the moment.
Windows is fine for that. I've just upgraded as a home user to a optiplex, running windows 7 64 bit. It has a 250GB drive, not bad. This old system has only 111GB. Of course been using it for thirteen years.
The optiplex is powerful compared to an old dimension 4600.
And that small file available is a live cd? And I mean a cd version, not a storage disk.
No, as far as I know the mini version is for installing only. If you do not have a DVD disc or USB drive of suitable capacity then not much else I can suggest except to get one if you want to run it live.
