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've been using Linux [mainly Red Hat and now Mandriva but I'm prepared to make more partitions for booting other distros if I need to. Is there a distro out there which will allow me to use my Nec e228 mobile phone usb data cable? Mandriva lists it as 'unknown'[but does show its name]. I wouldn't like to have to pay £25 for Nec's cd. Really 25 quid! And it may only support Windows.
By the way if the existing hardware does support Linux its supposed to be free on 'ebay'. Yeah! I got the cable only.
