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 am pretty sure that the system hardware is compatible with linux, as I had mandrake 9.0 installed a while back.
At first I had problems with it because I had a gig of ram. I took a stick out then tried the installation.
Next it would go through the installation and partially install. It got maybe 1/6 of the way completed. When it was installing xfree86, it would freeze making me reboot. This happened about 3 times or so.
Then it gave this error for each part that was installing (opensll, ect.). However, it didn't say why it failed. It asked if I wanted to continue or cancel. Cancel would cancel the entire installation. Continue would try to install the next thing, which would also fail. No packages would install. Everyone failed.
