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.

Hello everyone! I have been a long time reader of this blog and a lot of the things up here have helped when I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my other computer so I thought this would be the best place to come to find information about my latest project.
I have an ancient Compaq Presario 4504 desktop PC that has the old pentium processer 75-100 (200 mHz), 32 MB of RAM, 66 mHZ bus, and roughly about 1.45 GB to work with in hard drive space. It used to work windows 95, but a virus wiped that out and it has been hanging out in my guest room for a couple months now ready to be fixed over the summer. I have already tried the smaller linux distros like DSL, puppy, deli amd debian, but none have worked. DSL was the best in terms that it said that it had installed on the computer and to restart, but then when I restarted all I got was a blank screen.
I want to use it for really minimal stuff like surfing the web (checking e-mail, IMing) and be able to have open office on there to do some school stuff.
Please tell me if there would be something that would work for this computer and you would really make my day.
