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 just installed a Technika usb wireless keyboard / mouse on Mint.
the problem I have is as the wireless settings does not boot until the system has booted I need to keep an old keyboard on the floor so I can hit enter to start the boot process.
Is there anyway I can configure startup so it goes directly into boot mode and not stop and ask me how I wish to boot ( boot, safe mode etc)
That should be a BIOS setting. When you turn the computer on, before any of the boot devices are engaged, there should be a message on the screen prompting you to press F2 (or F10 or F12, or ??) to change the system settings.
