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.

the main reason is because of my printer and cd player. My printer which is a lexmark z25 is not supported and the cd player plays music via ide cable and not that other cord, since i have an onboard soundcard it does not have a place for me to put the cable for cd playing
If you don't have any audio cables, you can use cdda2wav or something similar. You can buy CD audio cables for the PC at your nearest Radio Shack or similar electronic store. Though I prefere cdda over analog audio cable hook up.
CUPS (Common Unix Printing Service) doesn't have support for Lexmark z25. I thought I spot it when looking for my EPSON printer.
Bochs is free alternative but its an emulator. If you know C programming you can change Bochs to be an virtual machine. There is Win4lin but it doesn't make a complete virtual machine. It just makes a virtual machine to just run Windows.
