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 have downloaded an ISO for a Distro called Nexenta using Opera, & but when I try to burn the ISO I find the ISO does not appear on the Burners list.
it appears on my documents folder but the burner Software I am using does not recognise it.
is there something I have to do for my burner to recognise the ISO.
Example would be ,if I downloaded a bz.iso then I would have to run "bunzip2.iso" to un tar it or what ever.
is there something similar I have to do with this ISO as I notice it ends in iso.gz
Distribution: Debian Etch (w/ dual-boot XP for gaming)
Also, most Linux distributions can mount Windows filesystems (albeit read-only for NTFS) - in this case, you can do that and copy the file over to your home directory of wherever, before gunzipping and burning it.
