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 realise this is
a) a very large request.
b) my first post ever (and a ridiculous request at that).
c) likely going to either be flamed to a crisp or just shrivel and die into postless nothingness...
I cannot figure this out at all and dont have much time to work on this. I want to run wolvix on a 1Gig thuimbdrive. i have the hp formatter, i have syslinux and I have poweriso. What I need is an zipped up or iso'd OS that is basically Wolvix desktop with the games from Wolvix games added into its library I don't know if this can be done as I hardly understand this however If this can be done and then hosted somewhere where it would be ready to download and install with as little involvement on my part as possible (and directions for even mildly complicated things) that would be amazing. I know this reads as a lazyass copout and apologize for the ridiculous amount of work this is however I know how generous the opensource community is and am confident you can help me.
ps: explicitly clear directions are a definite plus...
(I was unsure of where to post this so i picked newbie sorry if thats wrong)
You barge in without consideration for this community.
You deliberately violate the LQ Rules because you can't be arsed to read them.
You pretty much know how much work is involved, yet no word about retribution.
You want other people to do your work because you don't want to invest any time mastering this yourself.
Then you try to sugarcoat it by talking about generosity.
>>>you don't have to use nano>>> is that definitive?
that is "all" the instructions to use a positively well-honed "answer to your question"/ready-made-linux-distribution
(now you owe wolven $10 at least I'd say)
