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.

Ubuntu 11.10 is just too much for 512MB and an older P3 celeron. Xubuntu/Lubuntu/bodhi would run better if you want to use a *buntu. Mint Xfce/Lxde versions would be O.K. as well.
If it was me, I'd probably use debian Xfce or Lxde, it tends to have better performance than the *buntus or mint, and is still pretty easy to install and use. But I'm biased against *buntu and I like debian....
I agree with cascade9, I have a Debian stable install and it runs at much lower resources than any *buntu.
I have Slackware 13.37 running on a Toshiba 7000CT with 168MB ram, 266MHz and 4GB HDD no problems, and I also have had Archbang on the same lappy and it runs great.
If you want auto-dependency resolution go with debian/arch/salix
otherwise go with Slack

I really don't know I haven't use Puppy Linux before.
Lubuntu and Xubuntu are know to work really well in low resources hardware, and they come with lots of already installed tools.
