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 have an Intel 810 P3 384 RAM. I have tried almost every PUPPY on it, but they all take ages to Boot (3-5 mins). Same problem with SLAX, SLATIZ, REACT, GOOGLE CHROME LINUX. Would be grateful for a solution.
You shall also consider light resources graph enviroments like: Fluxbox, Openbox, Ice-Wm, Ede, LXDE or similiar to that old PC, Anything like Gnome or KDE might work slow due to a more nowdays high sys reqs...
A couple of suggestions. Upgrade the RAM if you can, it will definitely help.
The second is not to sue a graphical boot. Boot into a text console and if you want a GUI after logging in select a mid to lightweight GUI (ie NOT KDE, GNOME, Enlightenment, Unity) such as OpenBox, FLuxbox, WIndowMaker or for a more complete but still not too heavy desktop XFCE and use startx to launch the GUI. It can be noticeably faster on some system than booting directly into the GUI.
