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.

knoppix , knoppix will work, you can download knoppix 5.0 just google it
boot from cd, and once it boots to the desktop, press ctrl + f4, then type knoppix_installer now, you can install it as 3 things, 1 as a debian like system, 2 as the knoppix cd (choose this, it is the exact copy of the disk installed to your pc, its like running the disk off your hard drive), and then 3 something like a begginner
basically follow the instructions and there you have it
klinux89....will that work with any version of knoppix and do you think knoppix is a good distro to run from hd. i know it makes a great utillity cd. what would be the benefits of installing to hd compared to the knoppix live cd? just looking for your personal opinion.
If you want to get a CD that you can just pop in your drive and just boot and install, head over to your local bookstore and pick up a linux magazine for a couple of bucks. Most of them have CDs or DVDs with the latest distributions already on them. You can probably drive to the book store, buy it, and get back before you could download all of the ISO images anyway :-). Just a thought.
yeah, knoppix does, you have three options, and one of them is copy the image to hard drive to boot from, btw im sorry its not ctrl + f4, its ctrl + f3 then type knoppix-installer
you just can't copy the image to hd and expect it to boot, therefore there is a program to do that, and that program just doesn't copy it, it like installs it, but this knoppix distro can copy the exact cd to ur hard drive
unless if you wanted to take a cd and make an image, just use isobuster, or nero image, it will create an image to ur hard drive
