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'm a complete newbie, and I dual boot Mandrake 9.0. I want to triple boot, and I was wondering what other distro of linux I should use. I know that this thread probably shouldn't be here. And I know that it all depends on personl preference. But I just want someone to tell me what distro to download. It takes a long time to DL the ISO files so just tell me which one to get.
Hey acid_kewpie, I just wanted to make amens... I know that I sort of annoyed you in that other post that I didn't know. First impressions are everything, and I didn't want to start things off on the wrong foot...

ahh!!!! you fool! NEVER apologize to kewpie! he takes it as a sign of weakness, and then moves in for the kill.
(if you play dead, he might just thrash you around a bit then leave; esp. if he's not hungry)
yeah... if you're up for a challenge, try slackware or LFS - you'll have mandrake to fall back on, and you'll learn a lot more about linux with either of those two distros.
