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.

Yeah, you might want to try a lightweight window manager. Fluxbox is one, Blackbox is another (those are similar) and IceWM is another. There are more out there you can try.
You'll be able to run OpenOffice.org under any desktop environment/window manager, as long as you have whatever pacakges OO.org requires.
As for your scroll wheel, search the forum for this as it has been asked a lot. You will need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config (depending on whether you're using X.org or XFree86) file to make the changes.
i tried using blackbox and all i got was a blue screen ..the only command i know and that worked is ctrl+alt+backspace...
im not too much of the console guy... just started using linux and donno much of the commands... tried icewm and couldnt locate the home folder on the menu...
