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 have used pretty much all the mainstream distros, and im mor ethan satisified with mepis, i dont even use windows on this machine i use, i built a p4 monster dedicated to nothing but mepis..i recommend thsi distro for all entry level linux users, debian is great
I know I posted this topic, but oddly enough I ended up not using mepis anymore
I like my new slackware desktop, here's a screenshot in case you're interested for some reason, I just like it more because I got portage installed, and slapt-get is good to keep the system upgraded :-D.
ive just installed mepis have to say its so far the best. i just need to find out what services start at boot time so i can disable the ones i dont need. i would like to find out if i can use gnome desktop insted of kde. thanks for any help i can get. other distros ive tried are FC3,QILINUX,UBUNTU,FORSIGHT,and some live CD`S so far MEPIS works the best.
I use KDE so I can't help ya with the Gnome. I installed it once when Warren came out with the 3 extra CDs for Mepis 3.3 but it screwed my KDE up so had to reinstall Mepis. I am pretty sure someone will be along that can tell you how to do it.
for gnome 2.8, maybe 2.10 if they changed it since I used it, go into synaptic, and go into one of the tabs, I think "options", and go to repositories, and check all the boxes, then hit refresh, and you can now search and install gnome.
sorry for the unclear explanation, but I havent used mepis in awhile
