Are there any free video tutorials concerning linux installation and use? I have several live CDs burned (puppy/ubuntu/slackware). Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't read this all myself but try this. It's not a video tutorial but will help you with the installation.

Ubuntu install is a very simple and graphical process, NO FEAR! :) Is there a specific issue that gives you concern?

If you are having trouble installing try openSuSE 10.1

Download boot.iso

curl -O ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/opensuse/di.../boot/boot.iso.

Or you can use a browser.

Burn that cd image, boot with it. When the screen pops up with a few options hit F3, then F4. Select http install. For server use:

server http://mirrors.kernel.org
directory /opensuse/distribution/SL-10.1/inst-source/

And the whole system installs over the internet. SuSE installs on everything, with few exceptions. Among the other distros with a boot.iso install cd are:
FC5
Debian testing
Mandriva
FreeBSD

None of the distros you picked offer this feature. And, a video to help install linux would be pointless because there are so many ways to install.
