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.

Also, help us out by using more descriptive thread titles that actually describe your question instead of just a "help me", which doesn't describe your thread at all. We all know those that ask questions need help or they wouldn't be posting questions on these forums in the first place.
As for the problem, what error did you get or what type of problem did you run into? Being a little more descriptive helps in getting better replies from members here.
well i dont know what error he got, so I can't say.... what i CAN say is Dynebolic looks fantastic, works nice, and is all round... ultra cool! So - just use it
(some of the audio stuff doesn't work, and also k3b, be warned)
Just telling members to use a distro doesn't solve their problem though. You should try to be more constructive if you're going to help others. Telling members a distro "looks fantastic" and "ultra cool" probably isn't gonna win them over. And if it works nice, then audio and k3b would work.. sounds more like a broken distro to me. You should be a little more descriptive in why you think this distro would solve their problems.
You can use the right links on this page to download and burn popular linux distributions. Many allow you to boot from the CD and view/use them before you install them to the hard drive. These are called live-evaluation distributions, and allow you to see whether they automatically detect and properly configure your hardware before you install them to the hard drive. You can also see if the distribution is one you like.
