This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The problem was that it kept crashing after installing the guest additions. It seems there is a bug somewhere. So I have trashed it for now. Ubuntu is just fine. I have managed to install peppermint 2010 on some friends' pcs and laptops, to replace winxp. They are not computer literate but were quite impressed. If they keep on using Linux, I shall...
