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.

Hi, I am wanting to reformat and boot my little Dell Inspiron Mini 10v from my usb but it wont. It does not have a cd drive. It currently is running Linux Mint 10. Which I want to upgrade. i have tried the following:
Reformat usb drive
used multi boot, pendrivelinux and unetbootin.
I have returned the bios to defualt settings. Enabled the usb legacy. And Made sure usb was at the top in the bios.
i press F12 and choose to boot from usb but nothing happens.
I even tried using an sd card but still nothing. My usb lights up but it just wont boot. It will boot on another computer but not this one.
As far as I know. I tried to boot from usb on my other pc that has windows and it worked just fine, so I assume the usb are working. Linux identifys my usb and I can see what is on it, when Im in linux. But when I try to boot from usb, it just stays black.
I am using unetbootin and have used other programs that make a bootable usb. I make the bootable usb from my windows PC (Is this ok.) I tried Fat32 and Ntfs
yes I enabled legacy and still nothing. I have tried lower size usb like a 256mb and still nothing. Is there something quick I can do to test and see if everything is ok. For example, if u tell me to try certain things and after I try them if nothing works then that will tell me if its the usb or just the pc.
