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.

Heya all...didnt know where else to post my question, so I put it here.
Anyhow, what Debian distro has the most eye-candy by default after installation? I love Debian, and I like the look of, say, SuSE's Gnome, but I dont like RPM, so Im looking for a Debian distro that looks like that - all flashy n stuff. Thanks in advance!
KDE and GNOME are desktop managers, fluxbox is not. Desktop managers in general has a bigger memory signature because they have a lot of useless/useful stuff in there. Personally, I think if you have an older comp. with < 256MB memory, it doesnt make much sense to run KDE or GNOME on it. For eye candy, download and install Karamba for KDE.
Well, Kubuntu is the only distro I know of that uses KDE by default, which in my opinion is all "eye candy." As others have said, this is just a desktop environment. You can add as much "candy" as you want to any distro or desktop.
Check out Enlightenment as a DE on Debian. It's not default on any distro, but it's probably as flashy as you can get (all those slidey buttons, and oooh, shiney). KDE doesn't look like eye-candy to me, it looks like XP. To me, eye-candy is not something that is everywhere else, it's that something different that makes people go "Oooo, what's that? That looks cool!"... and THAT is Enlightenment.
