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 built my first computer and put the UBUNTU OS on it. The PC has a pentium D 3.4 Ghz processor with 4GB RAM and a 1TB hard Drive. The UBUNTU OS was the 32 bit version of 10.10. I decided to change to the 64 bit version. I was able to burn a disk and load it up to the point it has the files copied and I have input my name and log in info. Then nothing the forward prompt will not inniteate and the installation stalls. I ahve burned several disks from different PC's withthe same result. I have been able to get into the 64 bit environment by starting the disc over and "Trying UBUNTU" but have not been able to get the system to operate properly from a cold boot.
I had the same trouble myself but with the 32 bit version and so did a few others. I found that if I used any caps in the login name the forward button gets greyed out. Hopefully this is your problem too and just inputting small letters should do the trick.
