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.

You forgot Windows. Maybe you should stay with it and have a look at Linux again in one or two years. I truly doubt Linux -- each of the distros you mentioned and Slackware as well -- will satisfy your needs.
All the distros you mentioned should be able to share a harddisk with Windows, to automount CDs and to play MP3 files, but it might be necessary to do a little reading and tweaking, more or less. It's okay if you are not interested in this, but in this case you should not install slackware. Please. No.
I got my first choice, which is mandriva,
2 years ago i already started using mandrake 8.0 till now.
Since there are so many distros out there, no harm for me to try one.
Today, i will go back to my office to get my SUSE 9.3 first, i have never try suse. (My office internet is 2MB/s, faster than my home's one, only 512kb/s, so, normally i download the ISO files by using my office's PC.)
