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.

Im not havig much luck with Mandrake, I downloaded the ISO's for version 10, which is further than I have gotten with any previous download version, but when I try to burn the 695 MB ISO's to a CD-R 700MB I get an error that says "not enough free space"
The disks are all just out of the cellophane, and all the others in the box worked fine
Mandrake 10 is my last chance for a good while of installing Linux on my system (unless someone knows of a distro which supports the Home Station lol) and I would dearly love to make the transition
i use maxell 80min. 700MB cd-r's, and i don't have any problems. i've burned mandrake before using k3b, and other distros in windows using roxio. cd burning utilities in windows are weird. for example, you can't open up roxio and burn an .iso. the only way is to right click the file and tell roxio to burn it. perhaps nero is similar. try right clicking the .iso file and see what options you have.
i had the same problem as you, than i abandoned Nero for Alcohol 120%, and there was no more disk space problem.
If the above method wont help, you can creat a spare partition of 2-3GB to hold the iso image and install the distro from there (without buring the iso),as distros of linux update so frequently, this helps saving money---i mean CDR.
