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 Mint has got the live cd. You could try Ubuntu as well. New Ubuntu is coming in some days. Not really great specs but not too bas either. I have a similar spec desktop and it runs Ubuntu Jaunty. Its running with all the compiz effects as well and it is still faster than Xp on the similar machine.
Chaitanya, I ordered ubuntu new release, will try it out when it arrives. I will post what happens. Thanks Joseph.
It depends on your location on how much time it will take for your cd to arrive. If you have got a good internet speed and if you can afford download it on 29th.
I live in India, and it takes more than couple of months for the cd to arrive here most of the times.
