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.

I've just installed Mepis 6.5 and it seems a very stable system, much more than Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. Just i'd prefer Gnome desktop than Kde since the latter seems to be much bloated and ruins eye candy. Can someone tell me how to install the latest gnome version on Mepis ? I'm a beginner when coming to compiling things out, so the easier it is the better. Thanks for any replies
GARNOME is a build utility that allows users to build the GNOME Desktop.
Based on the GAR ports system developed by Nick Moffitt. It downloads, builds and installs the GNOME Desktop from the latest tarball releases. It also includes extra GNOME software to provide users with a comfortable and complete desktop environment.
so just install GARNOME and follow the breadcrumbs
