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'm not having any problems with this one so far. I'm using this box to surf, and to control the old WinXP box I run my webserver on (plus a few other Windows apps. such as the Qtopia desktop for my Zaurus.)
The installer software included in the Xandros Networks aplication can be used on its own; but it is not very informative when it fails to install a package ... e.g:
it converts kshowmail-3.1.0-2.RH9.i386.rpm to a deb package, but then it won't run it because it can't find hotwayd. Hmmmm.
Edit ... That was a n00b mistake, trying to install something that just wasn't there and hung up the XN interface for apt-get. I finally had to do a reinstall, but then it's just fine ... more stable than the other distros I've tried.
