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.

Hey everyone, newbie here. I'm trying to run the Universal-USB-Installer.exe and am having some trouble. I changed the permissions on the file and still have no luck. When I double click on the icon all that happens is that the terminal opens with no blinking cursor or anything.
Anyone have any ideas?
Ok, guys, I guess I should've been a little clearer; lesson learned.
I have an old pc that I am running lubuntu 12.04 on because of severely limited ram resources.
Once I upgrade (probaly this coming week), I plan on installing ubuntu 12.04. I have the .iso downloaded and want to use the Universal-USB-Installer to mount the .iso on my usb stick. For some reason the installer doesn't come with a linux version that I know of.
So I need a way to run the .exe on linux or a linux version of the installer.
Or another way of mounting the .iso on my usb stick.
Hopefully this explanation is a little more in depth.
Thank you for the help guys.
Once again, sorry guys. After I posted the last posting, I read about wine. I am currently installing wine as we speak.
Thanks for the help guys!
I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again in the near future.
