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 am just now geting in the market to build a Mutimedia Center PC. I was going to use Windows Vista, but with all the setbacks I don't know if thats the rout I want to go. Plus I don't want to wait any longer.
Hardware wise I am going with a mini case and a ATX micro intel board as well as an Intel Pentium D 805 Smithfield 533MHz FSB LGA 775 Dual Core Processor. I also have a 120 GB Hard Drive.
I have downloaded the ISO for Fedora and haven't installed it yet, I also saw that aLinux looks good but may be too Windows like. Which distro (of all) is best for Multimedia purposes? Which programs can go with it to do video editing, MP3 editing and playing, and Photo editing? I will also probably eventualy hook it to the TV and home sound system to run as my Media Center.
from my observations (google research) if I were using a PPC I would probably go with something like AmigaOS4, but since I am going with my own built PC what would you suggest?
any distro will work the same, you will just need to install the apps that you want, there is a distro called dynebolic(might not be the right spelling) which i think is a live cd, but might have the option of installing, prepackaged with multimedia apps, but regardless, it's nothing you can't install and configure yourself.
