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.

Well you need a mobile device (do you mean a mobile phone?) and you need a version of Linux that will install on to it.
Technically, linux is a kernel and I would guess that you are probably interested in getting a lot more than just a kernel installed, so whatever that other stuff is in your application, you need that too.
At least someone I find with imate trying to install linux with windows mobile. I have got Imate PDAL. Unfortunately both our phones do not have support in linux kernel. The good news is you can try the nearest matching HTC mobile that is supported.
I am trying wing-linux. It is an effort to add support to omap 850 processor based mobile devices directly into the linux kernel. Once the device is supported in the kernel you can install any linux mobile including android on your device. Do try all the installer files on the site before giving up.
I could go no further than seeing the ANDROID logo on my Imate PDAL screen.
You won't ruin your mobile.
1. Visit http://sourceforge.net/projects/wing-linux/ .
2. download wing-linux-0.4.2.zip and extract it.
3. install rootfs.cab and also startrek.cab (board support for HTC startrek)
4. run wing-linux from startmenu-> programs
If it fails, just restart your mobile and your windows mobile will be as it is.
You can experiment with other board support files by uninstalling startrek. You do not need to uninstall rootfs.
I am new,so don't mind if my suggestion doesn't help you.See you seem to be childish.Grow up now you are not child.Computer and mobiles are two different things.Mobile is for doing sms and making calls,so use it for that purpose only.Why wasting your energy and time in installing Linux on mobile rather than computer.
