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.

I just bought a little netbook that I was hoping to use for travel. Its got a 900Mhz CPU Processor with 512mb of ram which I hope to bump up to 1GB and a 60GB Hard Drive. There is no optical drive so i will have to install from a usb device. I was wondering what the best distro is for something of this nature (as the main OS)? I like slacko puppy but is it good for everyday use and some one who is still learning the ins and outs of linux. Are updates provided like in Ubuntu? Thanks so much!
