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.

VM Ware: Had severe problem installing it. It's also very huge.
Virtual PC 2007: Extremely slow. Especially when accessing the CD/DVD Drive. When installing Linux on a Virtual Machine from the physical drive, it takes ages. The work around is using an ISO image file. I could get the sound system up and running and the overall performance was poor
Virtual Box: Worked out of the box. Impressive fast and easy to install. Every thing works fine, even the sound system emulation. Sometime the network doesn't work, but after a reboot it always works. Last, but not least: The install size is very small (5 times smaller than VMWare)
