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.

Need some help here
Listen guys, when booting into the system i get the Ubuntu loading screen and the a black screen with the Nvidia logo flashing every 10 seconds and then black again, I tried to restore my x conf file which didn't help, as I assume I need to delete my Nvidia driver completely but I don't know how =X
Any help would be appreciated
thanks in advance
Hamscer, in future please use thread titles that say something about your question or problem, as you're told to when posting threads here. This will more easily draw the attention of people that may be able to help. Saying you need help and that you have a problem is pretty much a given, since this is a place to get help, after all.
Boot to the Live CD, then use the terminal application to mount and access your /(root) partition on the drive where you Ubuntu is installed. If you're not familiar with command line navigation and editing, you may not want to attempt this. You could definitely destroy your Ubuntu installation if you made the wrong commands.
If this is a relatively new installation of Ubuntu, you might just save time and tears by cleanly reinstalling it.
Almost at end of thread, you'll want to mount not install grub and do whatever the others told you.
Let the ubuntu cd boot all the way to desktop as if testing cd https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2
