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.

Yes Suse does offer DVD .iso files from there FTP site for free. A small investment of your time will reveal this. I dont understand all of the controversy from the previous thread. That being said, I have a .iso file that is about 8 gigs that contains both 64 bit and 32 bit data. How could I go about burning this disk? I am sorry but I used a torrent to download this file, mainly because FTP is unreliable because if your internet connection hiccups you lose all your data. (please tell me if there is a download manager that I can use that will store data to a temp file to access it again). I used a program to investigate the contents of the disk. There is a section completely devoted to the 64 bit technology. Could I extract the .iso, remove the uneccesary files, remake the .iso and burn it? I just cant burnt an 8 gig disk! Is there a program that will let me burn the data DVD into two sets? Please help as you can imagine that I have spent quite a bit of time to let my computer download this 8 gig torrent and I dont want to have to start over!
I've tried deleting the x86_64 directory, but it doesn't get it small enough to burn on a single layer DVD. However, when I deleted more things(x86 RPM's that I don't need), I have an ISOLINUX error while booting from the DVD.(I used Ultra ISO on Windows to remove the directories, this might matter).
I tried that too but it wont boot from the disk. I think the disk checks its validity before it continues. I also used Ultra ISO to extract the .iso remove the unecessary files and remake the .iso. Each disk i have made has failed to load. I am currently downloading the 32 bit DVD although it has less seeds and is DLIng slower not to mention I just wasted 5 days downloading 8 gigs..,. GReat
