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 a Unix professional with 20 years of Unix experience.
I have been working with Linux distros for approximately 6 years now.
Multiple google searches for a distro good for toddlers led me here.
I am currently downloading edubuntu 5.10, and will probably also look at debian as well.
Professionally, I've worked with the supposed big names in the Linux and Unix realm, namely AT&T SVR3, ATT&T SVR4, Centix, Xenix, UnixWare, CTIX, Solaris, AIX, SCO Xenix, SCO Unix, SCO OpenServer (all SCO were pre Caldera, of course), RedHat Linux and SuSE Linux. Personally, I've also tinkered with NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Stormix, TurboLinux, Yoper, Fedora Core, OpenSuSE and have started to work with OpenSolaris a bit as well.
While I'm not necessarily the master of all of these variants, I feel I have a very strong base of knowledge as well as the aptitude that helps me get the work done, while enjoying what I do.
Anyway, I ramble on now.
I just wanted to introduce myself, and say hello.
I hope to have the opportunity to help others as many of you have done.
