Don't know if this is old news... Just snagged a book off the shelves.. Linux Bible
2005 - Chris. Negus. (I got it for rs.440)
I'm just about to finish the 2nd chapter. so far so good ... not ready to comment on
the book yet.
But the killer thing is that the book comes with a DVD + CD ( the list as far I could
DVD - Knoppix (bootable), RedHat FC 2, Slackware, SUSE LiveCD
CD - Damn Small Linux (bootable - a knoppix variant), Debian Sarge
Knoppix rocks! Yesterday was the historic day that I heard an mp3 play from linux + the
sweet thing was that I was running linux
off a Disc. No partitioning, no installation woes. "It simply worked !!!"
I'd recommend this for someone who is just trying out Linux for the first time and
doesn't want to "Initialize" his HDD
