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.

Thanks for all the help everyone. I'm so happy I got it working.
I've got a few questions though. It comes with SeaMonkey, should I keep that or go with Firefox?
I downloaded a Gnome icon set, how do I use these icons? I also downloaded a JWM theme but I'm not sure where it's located and how to set it.
Also, every time I boot, it goes to the blue screen where it askes me if I want to boot Linux or XP, or install Grub to one of those. I tried hitting "install grub to linux parition" but that didn't seem to change anything.
All I have to do is hit enter but I'd like it if it would go right into puppy linux

Does anyone know if my way would work? Use Plop to let the laptop boot from usb and have a bootable usb of dsl/puppy?
If not then I think I'm done. Your solutions, business_kid, seem too complicated for my liking, too complicated/not worth it for something I'll barely use :/ haha.
Plop via floppy-disk: yes
bootable puppy usb with unetbootin? try it
Install puppy on usb? try it when the pc is booted with Puppy on the other usb (and perhaps stay with a floppy-plop / puppy-USB boot and dont touch your HDD.
