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 would like to boot linux from my external usb hard drive but I am consistly having problems. With most of the distros I have tried it seems things are good up to a point but then linux fails. The most prominent error is kernel panic. Can anyone help me can get this going or tell me of a distro that does this out of the box so to speak? Just trying to learn but cant spare the pc.
Yes! I helped my roomate with this exact problem a couple weeks ago. We finally tracked down this page: linuxforums.org/forum/t51896-how-to-set-up-a-fedora-core-4-on-a-usb-disk-drive.html (I left off the http and www part at the beginning of that link because I'm not allowed to post urls...) it helped alot. Boot from knoppix or linux rescue cd and run the command it says on that page.
