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 think I can speak for the puppy crowd in saying we'll play nice - no intention of spamming this list or such (if I understand your comment about robbing time?), just want to point out a distribution we are fond of, and more importantly, help others who have questions regarding puppy. Nothing is more annoying on a forum than spam.
It appears that a large portion of Puppy users are new to linux, as I am, so helping them find resources is important. That is one of the things that has made it work for me... were I using XP I'd be pulling my hair out, when with linux (or at least Puppy, since my experience is limited - probably a number of other distributions as well) I have the option of often getting an immediate answer from the irc channel or a quick answer from the forum. No more waiting days for a solution! THAT is what I love about open source... people want to see it succeed, which means seeing others succeed, which means helping out. In my case the appreciation I have for the help I've received just makes me want to help others in like fashion when I can.
Thank you for giving Puppy a thread here,
Try the new Puppy Pro with Open Office 2.0 at http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppyPro . Even though it is listed as a beta, we couldn't find any problems and it looks very polished and professional. We added Firefox, RealPlayer and came up with a very nice remaster. Puppy Pro adds its refinements after the official Puppy Linux is released so the current download is based on Puppy 2.10 and is around 200 MB in size. For really old computers they are working on Puppy 1.10 CE (Community Edition), http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy110 , which uses the 2.4 kernel.
Location: United States, Midwest, Central Time Zone
Distribution: Puppy 4.1.2 - 5.2.5
Puppy Linux has come a long way since Raffy made this post and likely the most significant development is the Puppy Linux FAQ. Now Puppy users can find the best documentation and how-to articles covering everything new users could ever want to know.
Puppy Linux is the easiest and best distro available for Linux newcomers and Windows refugees. Now that the Puppy Linux FAQ is available anybody can start using and enjoying Linux. Prepare to be Impressed!
