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.

Distribution: Mepis 3.4-3, Elive 0.5, Puppy 2.1, Gaming Linux, Windows XP all installed on 2 Hard Drives
Being on Dial-Up I tried a few of the older versions and as they didn't come with LT modem support I didn't spend much time using or getting to know them.
This all changed a few days ago when I read that Puppy 2.1 Seamonkey came with Dial-Up modem support.
I was online in under a minute!
Now that I had an internet connect I was able to see how Puppy would surf the net and discovered that Puppy comes with alot of Codecs built in.
It even played an encrypted DVD other Linux distros wouldn't even look at.
It also seems to download faster than then Windows and open web pages quicker.
The more time I spend with Puppy the more I like it.
While it's not perfect it's now installed on my Hard Drive with Windows XP, Mepis 3.4-3, Elive beta 0.5 and a Linux called "GNU LinEX" that contains 150 games and is Debian based which came free on a Linux Magazine.
after receiving some essential help form puppy gurus down here , i'm able to do what i want to do with puppy and infact i'm actually thinking of contributing(kind of) back by answering some questions(those simple enough for me though) but cant find one yet at the moment ...
for the time being i would like to "contribute" something back in this thread by saying puppy really works great for people coming in to linux for the first time or second time and such ... if you got a slower pc it is great , if yours is a better one then it would be even better if theres not much hardwares problems(but which doesnt ??) ...
and you dont need to run any home pc by pulling out big iron i-beams and stacking/erecting/joining them with over-sized bolts and nuts just for simple home pc usages ... there are no secrets , everything are so simple when you are with puppy linux ...
ok , thats it ... was given some documentions few days ago to read and understand linux a little bit more ...
//hope that i'm not saying anything wrong as a truly first timer with puppy linux ... forgive me if theres any ...
Thanks for your positive words, alred. Much appreciated. And good to hear that you are having a happy Puppy experience. Also do come and visit the main Puppy forum at murga.org, it's a happy and cheerful place :-)
