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.

If you set your BIOS to boot 1st from the CD, and then as the 2nd boot device, you set it to boot from your Harddrive, you can avoid having to keep changing your settings.
The 'LiveEVAL' discs run from the Disc but save some settings in a file on your C: drive. I don't think the Knoppix disc does that. One great thing about Knoppix, though, is that it is a complete distro that can actually be installed onto your computer in full - it is actually a Debian-esque distro. Whereas, I believe the SuSE LiveEVAL disc can only be run from the CD.
All in all, though, which ever you choose to play around with, if you can set your BIOS to boot from CD and then Harddrive, if you don't want to boot into Linux, you just make sure the disc isn't in the drive! Easy as that!
Nope! When you turn the computer on it'll flash up a message (quite briefly) about 'Press F1 to enter Setup' (or something along those lines). From here, you should look for '1st boot device', '2nd boot device', etc. It is these that need changing. Did that make sense?
