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.

Distribution: pclos2015, Slack14.1 DebWheezy, +50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
The cdrom's : If you have no DVD burner.
DVD's : If you have no internet connection.
But you will never need all 42.500 packages and their source code.
And : You don't get updates from DVD's.
So it's always a good idea with a netinstall :
You get the latest updates at once.
A basic install is about 1100 packages.
With the usual development tools / libraries : 1400 packages.
Listing installed packages ( in a text file ) :
1) dpkg get-selections > installed-packages.txt
2) ls -tl /var/lib/dpkg/info/ | grep list > last-packages.txt
