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.

What do I need to do so I can type java code of a bootable linux cd? I need to be able to compile, and it would be nice if it had different colors for different code.
note: the only linux I used is ubuntu, and only for like an hour, so I am newb
One way is knoppix 5.0.1 CD . It includes JRE 1.4.2_11
It's run off your CD. However, with kate it can compile very simple programs. But, if you have HDD space. you can download and use eclipse.
tasks: learn the following
knoppix - saving config with 'persistent home'
konsole - (terminal)
eclipse - internet (Help contents)
thanks, the reason I have to run it off a cd is that I will be using it at school, in my java class, (I hate windows 2000, and they blocked right-click!). The teacher let me use linux, but I cant put anything on the harddrive.
