This is a major source of Linux documentation. Most distro's have installation instructions within the ISO that you download. Burn the CD and look for documentation. Also... linux distros are becoming so easy to install these days (mandrake, redhat) that you don't really need any instructions - its as simple as installing Win95.

If you are looking specifically for info regarding RH8, check this out.
It has all you need to get started to install and learn.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

Just like asscL0wn said, the new distros are easy to setup just like win 95. Just do a default setup to get started, and to get a clue what its all like. From there on, its reading the man pages, and the howtos' that are on most of the newer distros. What distro are you refering to anyway. If its RH, or SuSE, then the installtion is really simple. Just follow the directions on the screen. Google, and antionline are also a great source for information aswell as linux.org, linux.com, and mostly any other linux site. Keep in mind that you will have to read alot though. Again i point out the man pages, as they are a valuable source.
Good luck to you.
