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.

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.

THANKS FOR THE LINKS TO HELP ME WITH MY IP1500 PRINTER
BUT I WOULD LIKE A CHANGE FROM SUSE
SO YES I WOULD LIKE TO OVERIGHT SUSE OR BEST TO REMOVE LINUX
SO I CAN JUST LEAVE XP ON THIS PC.
AND INSTALL A LINUX DISTRO ON MY OTHER PC
In your first post you asked about the other distributions that allow to use your printer. Mr-Bisquit and me -- we tried to help you to install that printer in the present distribution. It's always better to repair system than to change it -- if it's possible.
In your fifth post you stated that your goal is to remove Linux at all. The recipe pointed by yancek assumes you want to install Windows from scratch. Instead of it you could keep Windows removing only Linux. To do it is enough to change Linux partitions types into Windows ones (FAT32 or NTFS) and then format them using Windows. For you it'll be easier to use the program such as GParted Live than fdisk recommended by Microsoft. At the end fix MBR using your Windows system.
you could use the windows installation cd, complete the process and when it asks which partition to use for the installation you could select the linux partion and delete it. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T DELETE THE WINDOWS PARTITION. Usually M$crosoft will show linux partitions as UNKNOWN. good luck. if you need further help let me know.
