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 been using Mandrake linux for about a year now and now I have moved to Mandrake 10.1 which by the way is the worst of Mandrake.
It crashes more than 9.2 and very unstable.
Now, the problem here is, I don't know what other distro is good to go for, debian, ventor linux, fedora, ...?
I don't need any special feature, all I need is 1- everything to be free!!! 2- easy to install software on, 3- KDE 3 4- very stable 5- having no problem with WIN XP dual boot and fast.
I came from MDK 10.1 CE myself. I upgraded because of MDK's CE version is just fine until you keep stumbling across little niggling bugs and problems.
So I moved to Fedora Core 3 as it's supposed to be more stable and better supported.
And guess what: It IS!
It has a minor issue with it being somewhat tricky to install the NVidia drivers on Fedora (check for threads about this specifically...), everything works very well, uses KDE and Gnome and just rocks...
