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 installed the freespire version on an old pc that I found in a dumpster.
It looks good,its quick on this machine (750 M processor and 320 meg of ram) and it was free.I just wish I could have seen it in it's prime with the CNR running and supported.I have used Puppy Linux and have ubuntu installed on my main computer (ubuntu crawled on this machine).
Now perhaps as a linux newbie,I miss the point of linux,,I have heard some say that Linspire was "too much like windows" or "missed the point of going linux in the first place" and being new and dumb they probably know better than I do,but I look at this and think that though the linspire thing didn't work out that linux as a whole could take the idea of a central library under a single linux banner where a person,a newbie like my self can go for support and software (and no one expects folk to give their work away) then microsoft and apple would soon become as linspire is ,just something to play with on an old junk machine.
