What is the best way that I can obtain knowledge of Linux. I want to learn which Linux version is the most commonly used, how to install Linux, and other questions? Also, is there a good book that can provide assistance?

Thanks,

Linux is not so meaningless.
I just now installed Mandrake 10.0 official version on my laptop.XP is also there.Best linux version in GUI IMO is Mandrake and then Red Hat.www.linux.org is best site to start.Many Linux books are downloadble.

I did not mean to undermine Linux, by commencing a Linux thread on the Meaningless Drivel forum. I actually gave no thought when posting my Linux thread.

Nevertheless, I have never had exposure to Linux. As a result, I want to gain as much exposure to Linux as possible. I want to install Linux (preferably on my laptop that is already running XP Pro), learn how to install drivers, how to install programs on Linux, and how to use the OS in general. I will now visit Linux.org, to learn whatever I can.

Thanks,
