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.

Don't do it! LL for the Aspire One is based on Fedora 8 which was EOL'd 3+ years ago. Any modern distro should work just fine on the AA1 - I currently multiboot Fedora (15, 16, and what will be 17) and Ubuntu (11.04 and 11.10).
If you're going to ignore this advice,I keep a copy of LL for the AOA110 and AOA150 models at http://deli.no-ip.org/aa1 you can download. Use gunzip to uncompress the image, then use dd to transfer it to a 4GB or larger USB flash drive. Boot the AA1 from the flash drive and follow the instructions.
FWIW, when I tried a newer version of LL than that which was used on the AOA line of Aspire Ones, it wouldn't work properly. OP didn't mention which model he has; it may make a difference (but I still wouldn't recommend it).
On an AOA110l, Crunchbang works excellently. (should be the same on AOA150)
Any Distro based on Lxde should also work well. On other models things may differ.
Note: upgrading the bios is a good idea if you want the SD card slots to work at all.
The Original Acer version of Linpus Lite was so heavily locked down that they expected their customers to pay extra for Frozen Bubbles!
The downloadable version never worked properly either for me!
