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.

Here it is but it dosn't wook with Mandriva 2007. I have a Modified one for 2007.

# Slight adaptation for Mandrake by Sergei Zuyev <email@example.com>
# A quick hack that will create a bootable DVD iso of a Mandrake Linux
# Distribution. Feed it either a directory containing the downloaded
# iso files of a distribution, or point it at a directory containing
# the "Mandrake", "isolinux", and "images" directories.
#It creates /destination/dvd.iso and also the complete dvd structure in ./mkmdkdvd directory. If your dvd.iso creation is successful
#mount dvd.iso -r -t iso9660 -o loop /mnt/loop
#ls /mnt/loop )
#then you can safely remove
#/bin/rm -r ./mkmdkdvd
# Lots of disk space required to work, 3X the distribution size at least.
# GPL version 2 applies. No warranties, yadda, yadda. Have fun.
if [ $# -lt 2 ]; then
echo "Usage: `basename $0` source /destination/DVD.iso"
echo " The 'source' can be either a directory containing a single"
echo " set of isos, or an exploded tree like an ftp site."
It creates /destination/dvd.iso and also the complete dvd structure in ./mkmdkdvd directory. If your dvd.iso creation is successful
mount dvd.iso -r -t iso9660 -o loop /mnt/loop
ls /mnt/loop )
then you can safely remove
/bin/rm -r ./mkmdkdvd
If not, you at least have a complete system in this directory to use as a source or to see manually why the iso-image creation hasn't worked for you.
Enjoy, but do not blame me if smth goes wrong
