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.

It is my intention to eventually move over to Linux entirely because as everyone else, have been disillusioned with Microsoft for a long time. I haven't found a distribution yet that I am completely satisfied with. I have been trying to burn a Fedora ISO, but everytime it just copies another onto CD OR DVD. I have just tried Alex Feinman's Powertoy for the unpteenth time today, both disc-at-once, as it recommends and just now track-at once on Nero, because Power Toy is not registering on XP. I am dual booting at the moment with Ubuntu and yesterday, I tried on that using Brasero. I have also downloaded an ISO of OpenSuse which I had the same trouble with. I could certainly use some suggestions or alternatives PLEASE.
I think you're burning your images (ISO) the wrong way since you state 'track at once' and 'disc at once' which are no options when you burn an image. If you use Brasero in the main window you normally have 5 buttons on the left, the bottom one saying Burn image. That's the one you need to click on. Next in the pop-up window you choose the image you want to burn and click on Burn image.
