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.

pixellany, you really have the LQ spirit. -- I wouldn't have answered so mildly if I had gotten here before you.
darrelljon, what you're asking for is waaay beyond the norm, even for LQ; &, except for politeness, can get you flamed.
The least rude answer I can come up w/ is: "Where do you live & how much are you willing to pay?"
Yes, I never responded to this before because you have to realize something. darrelljon, you have to realize there aren't a whole lot of people that sit around waiting for someone wanting a remaster. There are over 400 distros, how many have you looked at? You have not specified what you want. Give us an idea what you need, and we (or at least, I) will look for a distro made like it already. There are a lot of guides for re-mastering a Ubuntu iso if you are willing to try again...
Hi, what I like about MEPISLite is its hardware compatibility, ease of use, multiuser GUI login and lightweight nature (for older hardware). I liked it so much I've given copies to friends (who only have dial-up). However there are some applications I'd prefer, OpenOffice rather than KOffice, KMyMoney, Firefox 2/Opera 9, Kopete rather than GAIM. Maybe even a lightweight window manager like IceWM. I tried tons of other distros and found Xfce too slow and Puppy and DSL lack GUI login screens. I tried the instructions at BabyTux as the ones at the MEPIS Wiki apply to MEPIS versions since 3.3. However this failed at "mount /dev/cloop/0 /mnt/loop". I understand people have remastered MEPIS and other distros and wondered if anyone could do it for me. Perhap there are services to do this?
Nothing is free in life, you would have to pay for the time it takes. You seem to want everything to bow down before your wishes, it won't happen. I can't see some poor soul taking the time for "some random guy on a forum" to remaster something for your holiness.
darrelljon - I think you may have a misconception of LQ. This is a volunteer run site. Every member here (and that includes the owner and all the moderators) help here for free and on their own time. Nobody is guaranteed help. And no one should expect others to do their work for them. If you need someone to remaster a distro for you, do you not think that they deserve something for their time?
Read the following two pages and then post back:
The GPL - to learn why it is that free software doesn't always mean "for no money" Politeness - to see why you may offend if you continue as per your posts above.
