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 am relatively new to Linux (2-3 months) and am looking at buying a new desktop. I know Walmart is now selling computers with Lindows (sorry Linspire) on them but I am more interested in continuing to use Fedora. I don't want to buy a new system if it means I can't use Linux with it.
When I first got my current system (several years ago) I wanted to get into Linux but the compatibility wasn't there. I don't want to go through that again.
Does anyone have opinions on which retailers (gateway,dell, etc.) sell desktops that are most compatible with Linux?
Would it be easier for me to go to a small computer shop and ask them to custom build a system with only Linux compatible hardware?
Are there any reputable websites that sell Linux systems?
why not build your own? you can get everything you need at sites like newegg, mwave, etc. then you know exactly what's going into it, and you can make sure all your components are linux-friendly. (it's also fun. )
