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.

This is a small live CD based on Slackware (6.0.7 = 12.1). Works equally well. Has all the Live CD features like "run from memory".
Many apps exist as modules. Modules can be plugged in and out at runtime making it possible to use any app while running from memory. As off writing, many contributed modules wait in the queue to be checked and called official.
Very good set of options to persist changes on writable media. Since changes are written to a separate directory or file system image file, it is equally easy to discard them.
Very easy to modify, even though the process is not fully documented yet. One change that may be needed relativaly often is that to the rc.init1 script. The script does not allow to set static IP easily, but it is sufficient to replace it with the original Slackware rc.init1.
Can be installed anywhere after manual partitioning, formatting, file copy, and one line console command to make it bootable. There are 2 functionally equivalent downloads - a TAR archive and ISO image. The ISO is the TAR already installed to a CD.
Pros: sane way to make a live CD from Slackware, excellent idea to add and remove modules at runtime.
Cons: one man project, so the docs and module check are not finished.
