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.

HowtoForge.com is a good starting point in my opinion. It has very clear, easy to understand guides that get you up and running in no time. Make your choice about the virtualization platform first, there are pretty distinct differences. If you have trouble following any of those guides, don't hesitate to post your questions here.
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
before you look into any virtualization solution, make sure you have a clear goal in mind before you start reading
a few things to take into consideration
1) the capacity and architecture of your REAL hardware
--some machines support hardware virtualization, dome do not
2) what host operating system you are intending on using (windows, mac, linux, bsd etc..)
--the host operating system will also determine what types of vm software is available for your use, some host operating systems have more vm softwares available for them than others
3) how many virtual machines you intend to use (virtual workstation, virtual server, experimentation platform etc.)
-- the number of virtual machines you can safely run will depend in part on the capacity of your hardware
4) what guest operating system(s) you intend to run on your virtual machines
-- some host operating systems will not run properly, if at all, on certain virtual machine platforms and some require hardware virtualization to run, also some will be native to the platform you are running and thus will be more compatible, others are not and will require a full emulation platform (though this is a less likely scenario unless you are running a legacy operating system for a different platform)
5) what you plan on doing with said virtual machine(s)
-- this will determine how you configure your virtual machines (what type of resources you make available to the guest OS)
what type of virtualization platform (xen, virtualpc, virtualbox, complete emulator) you should research and also determines how your setup will be ultimately configured (how much virtual resources to allocate etc..)
Thanks paulsm for the suggestions ..
Ya that would do , currently I have implemented the same on windows pc . Now I want try the other method ,
Assume if they are many sensors connected to the systems and user just request the data , here user doesnt have sensor location information etc , so I need a method do the sensor provisioning and grouping based on the user request.
So using virtualization concept we can create a separate pool of sensors for the user for his requested sensors to provide service for the requested time and delete that when user does not want.
