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.

hey there i was thinking of building my first LFS system but i can't seem to figure out which distro to use.. because most distros are either out of date or are too fresh.. however i did try out a few distros but most of them don't seem to meet the host system requirements as stated here. could anyone please suggest me a distro thanks in advance..
I've used Slackware, Gentoo, Debian, Arch, Fedora, Scientific, LFS, and CLFS as the host when building (C)LFS systems. The last time I built LFS was using a Slackware-14.0 host. From what I've seen and heard, the *buntus are more problem than they're worth, so I would avoid them as a LFS host. However, most any distro will do as long as it meets the minimum requirements on the page you've linked to.
