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 just installed MintPPC 11,it went well no errors,but when rebooted then black screen and it ask for username no problem there.
I downloaded the iso made burn with iso buster.
but when it ask for password i could not type anything in there as same line us the password is.
I tryed other reboots as well with the linux 1,same results,i can not put the passwords in.I installed twice.
I searched the whole internet to solve this,could not find it.
Just checking, but you do know that when you type the password, nothing will appear on screen? ie you type the password in and hit enter and if you have used the correct password you will be provided the prompt,
otherwise it will give you an error.
no,nothing happen,i tried the keyboard all letters nothing is showing,when go to the next command line I can then type only a few letters then after this comes login incorrect and then starts again with login
thanks for helping
So you have logged in successfully which is good. I would now probably suggest contacting the forums at MintPPC site as they would be best to help you with what may have gone wrong or what the next step
As for what to type at the command line ... you can use any linux command available, the usual of ls and cd would at least start to help you look around
