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 Debian testing with Gnome on Pentium 3 667mhz with 128 MB Ram.
Will Mepis give any advantage? I use the computer for aMule and Bittorrent and learning the linux system better so that I'll be able to install on my main computer which I use for games,internet and sync. with a pocketpc.

Well, what are you looking for? If you want to get to know the Linux system better, Mepis is mostly point-and-click and won't help you. How about Ubuntu? Or, if you really want to get to know your system, how about Slackware?
If you want to be productive and replace Windows, Mepis is the best distro. If you want to play around and not get much done, Gentoo and Slackware will give you hours of entertainment. IMHO computer OS's are tools. A tool should be unobtrusive and easy to use. The choice is yours. You can use your computer to work or you can work to use your computer. Mepis rules.
Those are great points Richard. I use Mepis 3.3 as my main operating
system. Everything works right " out of the box ". And it's just ONE cd,
not 4, not 14, like all those bloatware distros that don't install or
function as easy as Mepis does.
