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.

ok, ill just wait it out for now. we'll see what happens.
Once I figure this out and can start using my wireless. Im gonna delete all this and start over with a fresh install of XP but this time I want to create a partition for Linux. I can do all this stuff with that ubuntu right? like its all the same stuff?
THere is a tutorial on this website for partitioning but it is seriously in greek.
ALSO: You know of any like super basic linux links that will explain all this stuff in 5 year old terms?
My advice would be to stop messing about with BackTrack. Like somebody said, it's a specialised distro. Go out and look for Linux magazines, they give away distros on DVDs. Get one with Mint or Ubuntu preferably, or anything. Re-install your XP, giving it the space you want, then install the linux distro.
