It's so confusing when looking at Linux. There's Red Hat, SUSE and (what's missing?) and I'm so confused when I attempted to buy a book earlier tonight. What's the book for my Mandrake Linux 9.2 as a beginner anyway? Thanks!

Before you buy a book, dedicate an evening to surfing their sites and linux related sites. This should give you the overview you need. Every distro has advantages and disadvantages. Personally, I would recommend Mandrake to someone who is really new, but you'd have no trouble finding many others recommending other distrobutions.

Good luck!
