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.

There was a copy of Slackware 9.1 on the cover DVD of Linux Format a few months ago here in the UK, but unfortunately for some reason I couldn't get it to work properly and had to burn copies to CD-ROM to get it installed.I don't know where you're based but going here:
For me it's $1 for a DVD vs 80 cents for 2 CDs. I know you can get CD-Rs for 20 cents, but I don't buy those in bulk as I rarely use them. I still think it's even worth 60 cents more for the convenience of 1 DVD.
Edit: Not to mention you could probably add even more software to the DVD.
