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.

Puppy, Absolute(based on Slackware), Slitaz, will work on older hardware. Puppy is more geared toward older hardware, Try the newest version of puppy first. If that doesn't work, then use one of the iso's out of puppy-431/special puppies.
Distribution: I have been learning about Ubuntu 10.10 but havent fully installed it yet.
I looked into the Slackware operating system and am currently downloading it. I should have checked the system requirements for Ubuntu before trying to install it. I think that is why I was having so much trouble installing it. The PC I tried loading it into doesnt meet the minimum recommended specs. I found some really interesting reading material on Linux. The books are "The Linux Bible", "Linux in a Nutshell", and "Slackware Essentials". I would suggest these books to any other newbies wanting to become more familiar with the world of Linux. Thank you everyone for your time and suggestions. I will let everyone know how it goes with intalling Slackware.
