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 would say it is the easiest install for linux I've ever done. And it is the first time I had it work with the first install. Though I still can't use it with my 19 inch lcd moniter. It loaded nicely on the old junker I put it on. So I give it a 10. But I agree there is no best distro. They are all lacking. Best would give ones like me easy access to making it start in old no gui form.
And a quick way in gui to change the choice of sound cards and video, and moniters. Gosh all the Windoz seem to have no problems with the moniter thing. If I didn't have so many projects I'd figure out how to do it.
The thing to remember about any thing with software. You always need the simple setup stuff well documented in a how to fix form, and how to go in and change things if it doesn't work with the choices you made at setup install time. This is a huge problem with all software. There is always so much information about nothing that comes up in real life. And nothing about a few important small details you need to know. Its like a car shop manual that says remove the steering wheel. Okay how do you do that. Just an example.
Yes Bill, you're so right! The manuals always have the answers to all problems except the ones I encounter.
That's why, of course, forums like LQ are invaluable.
And no, I don't have any idea how you remove a steering wheel ;-}
With you there Bill and Catweasle.
I used to be a technical author when I was younger and I always insisted that I should not write manuals in my own field (relay logic, it was a long time ago) because of the danger of assumption of knowledge in the reader.
Sadly I'm no longer a full time Zenwalker, 6.0 proved problematical for my old PCs so I relegated it to my second box and to tide me over I installed Mint 6.0 for day to day work.
I've never thought much of the *buntus and I'm no real fan of Gnome desktop but Mint is so solid it's just stayed with me.
Steering wheels are usually removed by using a puller which is generally unique to the make and model. I used to make my own for Land Rovers.
