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.

Good, as usual, but the 2.6 kernel wouldn't use my ImPS/2 mouse (I use a USB > PS/2 adaptor, but I don't think it should affect it). I think this is a problem with all 2.6 kernels, but I don't know, I might be misguided.
Debian GNU/Linux follows the real core values of the Free Software Foundation. It is freely downloadable and the Sid installer is better than ever, though admittedly the hardware detection leaves something to be desired, since many devices are difficult to set up due to the high security policy.
Debian allows you access to over 8710 free software packages through its apt package system, which is on the whole very simple and easy to use and generally unbreakable, though not so much in the unstable branch.
As another reviewer, Debian can be as hard or as difficult as you want it to be. Setting up hardware needn't be difficult if you do it properly.
