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.

Runs like a charm, has decent variety of software
Not what I'd want for everyday use
I strongly recommend this product if you need a "rescue disk" for Linux, and you like Gnome instead of KDE.
Every now and then I accidentally max out my hard drive, and when I reboot the machine, GDM won't even launch. That's when it's time to break out the Gnoppix CD! Pop the disc in the tray, reboot the machine, and in a few minutes, I'm launched fresh into a fairly complete desktop environment. I can mount all the partitions from the hard drive by merely right-clicking the desktop, and make whatever adjustments I need to get my computer up and running again.
Or if it looks like I've horked my Gentoo system and I'm going to have to reinstall it from scratch ::sighs:: having Gnoppix around takes off the pressure to get Gentoo running quickly. I can do most of my day-to-day tasks perfectly well in Gnoppix, like word-processing, web browsing and IMing.
You may not use this distro every day, but it's a godsend on a rainy day. I'm personally going to download it again as soon as they have another release with Gnome 2.6!
