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 still have Hard disk with pata/IDE port,
but now almost all mobos have sata ports,
no IDE port at all,
what to do with my old hard disk if I change computer (I customize)?
I have a Seagate 500GB and Maxtor 320 GB,
it is a waste to throw them away.
I have external housings that have both (E)IDE and SATA connectors internally - you can use either type of disk in them. I bought specifically because they could. So I can use them as external disks via the USB connector; good for backups.
I've also swapped out the disks in old (real, consumer) PVRs I have, and stuck in my bigger ones.
