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.

If you mean can you get a working download, when it is finished, yes. As said above it is just a file. The most important thing is burning it as an image so it will work when you are done, not just burn a file copy.
Why are most distro's posted on the web/ftp as ISO files? Why not RAR, 7z, or Ace compressed archive volumes for smaller downloads? This is the way pirated iso's are distro'd like Windows XP!
not quite sure what you mean by that. its free and could be downloaded unlike windowxp but yeah people should buy from authorized distro sellers' so that the money goes to the concerned distro maker|vendor instead of some pirates' pocket.
