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.

well you've not even said what your mp3 player is.... if it's seen as a mass usb storage device, then no, by rights it must accept it just fine. couldn't say if it's a more bespoke interface you nee to use... i'm sure nothing terminally fatal could happen at all though.
and yeah ethernet is fine, better really. if you already have a linux host running, i'd guess the very easiest way would be to copy it to win98 by using winscp on windows to just copy it throught the probably already runnign ssh service on linux. samba will also do the job, but is much more complex, and just gonna annoy you for a single file i expect.
It's a Sony walkman (NW-E005F) and it doesn't seem to follow the rules. (Generally you mount then drag+drop, here you NEED sonicstage) I'll just make a back-up of the files on it. That way, if the ISO kills it, I can just destroy the file, and put the original stuff back on. I read somewhere else that putting an ISO on an MP3 player could ruin it, but it turns out it's just if you're trying to boot from it.
I have another question; is it possible to burn from a USB flash drive to a CD directly? The PC's HDD might not have enough room to hold the ISO.
