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.

lol, every vendor under the sun... there are probably alot more than u think !!!!
u think its pants even though you have never tried it ???
anyway, you need to give more info than, it doesnt work...
what doesnt work ???
have you burned a distro onto a cd ????
(from iso, not drag and drop !)
have you gone into bios and set boot device as cd-rom ?
have u booted from the distro cd and installed ???
and yeah, linux rules.
apart from the stablilty, speed, and security, my fave feature is that if you dont like your graphical user interface, you can just install a new one.. there are litrally hundreds to choose from !
Linux is good, just because it's good. With linux you don't have to deal with those annoying dll, or registries and so many hidden files that windows installs, it's more secure, you have many more choices. It just rocks
