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 have two EeePCs running Linux on SSDs, a 701 with a 2gb SSD and a 901 with a 4gb primary and 16gb secondary SSD. They are not the best SSDs, write speed is kinda bad. They are certainly still usable if you work around the limitations, they run quieter, cooler and draw less power, so I think it is a pretty good trade off.
I could upgrade to some much faster ones with more capacity, but I haven't seen the need yet.
I also have 2 SSD drives, one is the new intel fast drive, it does make a difference, no noise and chatter of moving heads.. yes, the write speed is kind of crummy, but for the most part, they're ok, kind of pricey, but ok
