Linux OS

I would like to get some instructions on how to install and use the Linux Puppy or Linux Mint operating systems. Are there any classes that are offered locally? I have an old Intel Atom netbook that uses Windows 7 Starter, and it has become very slow because it can no longer handle the Windows operating system. The netbook has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom Processor N455 & 2 GB of memory. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
