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.

There are also plenty of offerings from other distros. SuSE have the 'Live Eval' version that installs to a Windows partition - I think with a little time and patience you can successfully add various different parts of it so that it becomes a full distro rather than a taster. Mandrake used to offer the Mdk4Win - similar concept. ZipSlack does the same thing... there are loads. They do not say that for $25 you will get support, but that's where we step in It certainly is disagreeable that some should have parted with cash and have been supplied with nothing, but it is possibly a simple adminstration error, and you should never part with hard cash unless you have the product in your hands. I would say that this should be a lesson for those silly enough to send physical money rather than cheques or whatever, rather than that Phat are a bad company.
Well its seems that I have been duped into the PhatLinux triangle also. I recently purchased that CD online that so called PhatLinux to get my self acclimated to Linux as a newbie ......And as of today have not received my CD that I purchased.
Ive sent an e-mail to email@example.com and also firstname.lastname@example.org and still to this date have not received any response. Im giving it three days , if theres no response ill just put a claim to my credit card company and resolve it that way. Kinda sad.I've heard good things about it for intro users/newbies other than a few device driver problems but thats not a problem. Ill keep you guys updated
I wish I read your post,it's been 2 weeks 25.00 less and no way of getting incontact with these people,I like to try out different Linux dist.,does not look like im going to get to with Phat Linux.I feel ripped off,I wish I could download it somewhere. Paul
