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 have been using 10.10 for quite awhile now, but the other day I came across this error.
"Problem with Configuration server"
(/user/lib/libgconf2-4/gcong-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)
This was when the splash screen came up. Login screen was different and then in the top right corner there was another error about Gnome Power manager.
So I have looked through many different forums and tried many different things. Here are some of the things I have tried using the terminal of a boot disk.
sudo fsck -fy /dev/sda1 (this stated the drive was mounted and if I continued there would be damage done)
sudo chmod 775 /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system (trying this did nothing except go to the next line)
sudo apt-get install gnome-panel (all this one said was that current panel was up to date)
Any help would be great. By using the boot disk I am still able to see all information on the HD, so I know it is there. But I would really like my computer back, so again any help would greatly be appreciated.
