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.

1. Is it ok if I use burning software other than the one used in the tutorial?
2. I used software other than the one that was used on the tutorial. It took about 5 minutes to burn. Did I burn it too fast? If yes, then how long is it supposed to take to burn?
3. Once you burn the .iso file to the cd, do you have to extract the contents inside of the .iso file and burn those files into another cd? Or do you just need to burn the .iso file to the cd?
I think I'm having problems on the burning part. When you burn the .iso file (a single file) to the CD and then you look at the contents of the CD after burning it, are you only supposed to find the .iso file or many other files/folders on the CD. Because I burned it but I only see the .iso file on the cd. But if I extract the .iso file then I find all of the other files.
Oh and if I extract the .iso file and reburn the contents to another CD, can I use that CD to set up Ubuntu?
