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 don't remember ever seeing version 1.0 as a pdf.
If you don't mind an older version, just google for rute.pdf... there are still copies of the file floating around out there. (Is there a reason you need pdf? I guess you could download the latest version as html and convert it.)
Ironically, I was looking for this very same thing two days ago. I, too, was looking for a PDF document so that I don't have to sign online to read it (I take my laptop with me lots and internet isn't an option, and boredom is frequent). What worked for me:
as search parameters in regular Google. The third item down (for me anyway) was marked as a PDF document. I have the Acrobat reader plugin installed on my browser, so I don't know if right-clicking and "Save Link As..." is an option but I would not be surprised if it is. Otherwise, you can "Save a Copy" from the Acrobat reader plugin... like I had to do for some reason.
I hope it works for you.
By the way... while I'm on the subject... I have the pdfs of the linux cookbook, rute, and the slackbook. I like the "Cookbook" the least, but that's my personal preference. For me, RUTE and slackbook are pretty much the only things I need to get by with intermediate to advanced tasks. For the sake of argument, I read slackbook first, then I browsed through RUTE. It gave me a fantastic working knowledge of slackware and general linux.
