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.

Distribution: Linux Mint 15/Ubuntu 13.10/Debian 7/SUSE 11.x/openSUSE 12.3/RHEL 6.4/Fedora 18/Slackware, and 5 more
Out of curiosity, is there any download for this veteran distro? I have tried ftp://ftp.mcc.ac.uk/pub/linux/mcc-interim/ but the browser just states down, and asst the end says that it can't connect. If there any other official download?
I have found a download site, but what is the latest version, 1.2+ or 2.0, because as I remember, version 2.0 is actually Debian, so which is the latest?
I am not entirely sure why you would want this. The last version per wikipedia is from 1996. I cannot even see it running well on modern platforms. The article says 1.0 is the latest from 1996.
I especially like this (from wikipedia's page), which you were given above as well:
The 1.0 distribution of MCC Interim pointed out that Debian was "five times the size of MCC, and quite comprehensive", and the final distribution encouraged users to switch to Debian by providing transitional support.
