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 looking for some help and suggestion related to thinclient.I am using a NS geode processor thinclient which was previously running wince but at the later stage due to my interest on linux I am trying to use linux on that. The hardware configuration of the device are:
NS CX5530 Chipset
NS-Geode 300Mhz Fanless CPU
pc-133 64MB Integrated RAM
National NS9731716 Bit I/O
Compact Flash Ram Support 32MB.
The device is having a PCI Modem.
Can any one advice me which kernel I should use for this config or is there any readymade image available which I can directly flash in to my Flash(I am looking for an Desktop environment).
I have downloaded few tiny linux distribution which I am able to boot from usb(with normal desktop not with thinclient) but the same usb is not being detected in Thinclient to boot my OS.Even I tried to locate BIOS but its embedded bios setting.
It will be of very great help If any one suggest me some solution for this to proceed further.
