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 a problem with the UBUNTU that was installed in my computer. About a year or 2 ago a friend install Windows XP. He recomemded Ubuntu from Linux and said that when I turn on my computer I will get the option of starting up either XP or UBUNTU. I figured hey that sound great, do that.
Everything worked fine for a while but every time, without fail, that I started UBUNTU it would freeze on me after 20minutes to an hour or working in it. So, I left it alone and only worked with XP. I never got around to have it fixed because no one is ever available to help me with it.
Recently (about 4-5 months now) I had a problem with my XP and I wanted to format my 80gig. Now it gives me a GRUB 22 error or a GRUB 21 error.
I believe he had partitioned a 10 gig and put UBUNTU there so I don't understand why it gives me the GRUB errors on my 80gig I have a second 80gig that I want to put in my computer but that one also gives me a no disk found error.
I really want to have this thing fixed. I don't know much about computers but I get by. I also do not have much cash but have decided on getting one of those barebone computers and just use my 80 gigs but if I can't even format that...
