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.

Would anyone know of a very minimal Linux distro that'll fit in less then 128MB of space. I have an HP thin client which is required for a telnet interface to a computer. The inital operating system doesn't support telnet connections.
It doesn't require an X interface. The only requirements are to connect to a telnet interface on boot, without a login. Something very minimal like ttylinux looks good, but as they use busybox, I'm unable to get getty to autologin.
Try Tinycore/Microcore or Slitaz. Both are very customizable and have no problems to fit in 128MB. Tinycore (with X) needs about 10MB without applications installed, Microcore (without X) needs 8MB without applications. Slitaz will use 30MB by default, but comes with a bunch of applications, including the toolset needed to create your own custom version, which is well documented and very easy.
