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.

2.Suse takes about 3GB or more and pclinuxos takes under 1GB i'm sure.
FWIW SuSE's footprint can be under 1GB or over 5GB - it is all up to you as you select the packages at install time. A distribution which gives you options != bloat
Not playing WMV or other proprietary formats is not the fault of SuSE/Novell - they are avoiding patent disputes while maintaining a largely free/OSS distribution, leaving you free to post copies on bittorrent or give DVDs to friends and coworkers. Most distributions won't do MP3, DVD, WMV, and other codecs out of the box, but adding that capability is a simple matter for nearly every distribution.
