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.

Why would you like to install it? I'd *really* suggest you DON'T want to, it's *VERY* old, get something modern, like Ubuntu or Fedora. During a Linux installation, you'll be able to remove existing partitions, just let the installer do its thing.
I don't think that this is good advice at all. I'd bet money that they don't actually want 7.2 at all, it doesn't make sense that they would know they needed such a specific and ancient old version and yet not know how to even begin the installation. Sometimes, as I'm sure you know with your 15 years commercial hosting experience (please remove the link, unless you are paying for it...) that you often need to answer the questions that should be being asked, not the questions that are asked, as it can just make things much more complicated for the wrong reasons.
