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 recently tried to install fedora core5 over win vista. I created a partition and loaded linux. It seemed to load fine, no complications. when I booted it up for the first time, it brought me to the login and after I logged in it loaded a black screen with no response. I rebooted with vista and erased the partition and then I was stuck at the grub loader. I am not a big fan of vista anyway so I thought I would just load linux over the top of vista and now it does the same thing. It brings me to the login screen and as soon as I login, it loads a black screen with no response. If you can't tell by now, I am very green as a user and I really just want to get linux loaded and operating so I can start learning how to use it. I don't have any of the drivers for it either (just to make matters really bad) my laptop is a hp presario dv6000. If anyone has help, I would greatly appreciate it. As I said, I just want to get it loaded and working and I just got ahead of myself instead of getting help BEFORE I got into trouble. Thanks alot, ahead of time,
