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.

ok will do, just thought you might have a better site to download it from thats all, i must stress i wasn't being lazy!,becouse you have to be carefull these days there are a lot of people out there who are just hell bent in messing peoples computers up with nasty viruses. i just though this would be a safer option thats all.Thanks
The only thing about Gentoo is how long it takes to install, since it's all compiled from source, unless you do a different installation, which from what I've read is strange ...
You could install it quickly and easily from the major distributions, as far as I know. Ubuntu for some reason has a problem setting the wallpaper when you first install it, but afterwards (if you use a style or set your own background) it'll work fine.
At least that's my experience with it, and I'm sure it's not my computer.
Maybe something else ... I don't know.
Take a look at the distro at www.linuxmint.com. It has a package system which supports preview images and rating which makes it really easy to discover open source software which you may not have heard of.
