Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
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.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. 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.

I tryed to install two times Ubuntu 5.04 amd-64 but the problem persist, the system completly freeze after a while, without doing something in particular, sometimes in the gdm screen, sometimes after some minutes of work.
Reading some forum and thinking that the problem was the video card I tryed doing those things:
Adding "vmalloc=256m" in the grub, but without success,
adding "acpi=off" in the grub, but the system not start, it freeze at the biginning of the boot process.
