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.

So I rebooted PC again and used Text install. IN here I was asked where I wanted to place grub I had a choice between HD7 and MBR. I choose HD7 then when it asked me to choose where root was ( /) I said HD7 and asked to format it. In the text install gui it's been at 11% formating since lastnight.
