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.

Been playing around with linux for a few weeks, went from Redhat 9, to Suse (personal edition), and now I'm going to try out Mandrake as I've heard good things about that, but I was looking for some suggestions about a good basic linux book for some who is very computer literate, but with little experience outside the Windows world.
I'm also looking to play around with Linux more for a server point of view (web hosting, php, mysql, etc...), is Mandrake the way to go? Suse PE didn't work for me cause it was stripped down and had some problems installing things.
Dont forget to try out google. Ofcourse, Rute user's tutorial and exposition is excellent. I would suggest you search online book retailers by keyword linux. Also browse the LQ linux tutorials, wiki, book review sections.
swim with the penguin in the ocean called LINUX !!!!
Even if I haven't seen ye olde blue screen for years, I agree with kells80 - Marcel Gagné's book is excellent. I got it from the library with the included CD - an adapted Knoppix version. One of the former readers had included the Danish version of Knoppix and a note on the last page encouraging to make sure the version was up-to-date for the next user.
That's the spirit.
