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.

If you are looking for something that install under windows, you probably wont find it, you would be better to try a live distro, this is a distro that runs of a cd/dvd without having to install it. Then if you like it, you can choose to install to the hard drive, you will need a spare partition on your hard drive to do this though.
I am working with FreeDos and I may need Linux. to compile copy source code from linux
to port etc. Figured that something I could start from DOS would make my life easier.
I already knew about the live cds, so far all that boots is DSL, DSLN, Puppy and Slax
its an older laptop. Lifebook 770TX with 160Ram. Great for dos, so-so for everything else LOL.
Need something lean and mean but not too lean.
