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 would like to burn some copies of my knoppix cd as I'm currently working on at least 5 computers which are being built and need an OS , I was wondering what software I need to do the burning, How to do it, and whether or not it makes good copies of the CD's.
Thanks to all the people who help on the Newbie forums your stars, unsung stars.... cheers.
You need cdrecord and your burner configured as a scsi device. I find the command line easiest to use for burning iso's. Here's how to do it;
do cdrecord-scanbus (shows the address of the device eg. 0,1,0) as root.
do cdrecord dev=0,1,0 -v /path/to/image.iso (say the image.iso is in /home/joe/knoppix then the line is cdrecord dev=0,1,0 -v /home/joe/knoppix/knoppix_image.iso).
That's it. Much quicker than M$ based stuff.
Have burned a number of knoppix discs and other stuff and not had any coasters.
