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.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Linux-Newbie and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves. It's a technical question, so it's better in a more technicla forum than Member Intro.
Installation from hard drive may looks like a good option in your case. Check if the distro you choose supports it, however (not all have it).
start with root and boot floppies, and then it sweetly asks for the 4 driver floppies, which then inquires about formatting your Hard drive; and then fires up your network for use for the remaining download.. then it is easy to upgrade to the latest distro..
