The Linux Minibook is a publication by Australian PC magazine PC World. It's priced at A$17.95 and consists of a four CD package (containing Red Hat 7.1, Mandrake 8.0 and a CD of applications) and an extremely useful 'minibook'. Seriously, this book is great. It's just a little booklet of the basic stuff you need to know. It is available from most Australian newsagents or from their website (www.linuxworld.com.au). The Red Hat and Mandrake distributions are covered else where, so I will list only the applications on the fourth CD.
