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`m want to make a dual booting with Vista I have:
Toshiba Satellite A215
AMD Turion 64 x 2 Mobile Technology TL-52 1.60 Ghz
I downloaded Ubuntu last release, burned the Iso file but when I tried to installed it using the disk, the normal installer do anything and the windows based UBundu installer said "Could not find any appropiate CD".
What sould be the problem? Can I used without problems Linux with my Laptop?
This reads as if you burned the ISO image as a **file** and not as an **image**. The difference is that with the file burn you in essence copy the file to the CD, and when it is opened, it is just the ISO file on the CD. When the image is burned to the CD you can open the CD and see many files and directories. You may need to use a different burning application if your current one does not support image burning.
I downloaded ubundu for second time and burned the image with Imgburn, compare the content of the second disk with the first and get the same results. Whe I used the installer application it said "could not find an appropiate disk".
These are the files that are in the disk after burned the image file:
File Folders disk
Distribution: Sidux - Mint - PC Linux - Ubuntu 7.04 - Mepis 7 Beta5 - DreamLinux 2.2
I don't think you burned the ISO correctly - sounds like you burned it as a data file..
Read this http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO on how to burn ISO's
Also do check the ISO you download with the MD5 checksum number - Google it if you have any questions...
No, he burned it OK, otherwise he'd just see one big .iso file.
Whe I used the installer application it said "could not find an appropiate disk".
So I think he is getting to the ubuntu desktop, and then clicking "Install"
But then it is complaining.
So, jmgv26, what sort of hardware do you have?
What sort of Hard Disk Drive?
Is there any free space on that drive?
I have merged your two threads on the same topic. Please
stick to one thread, spawning of a second one that's closely
related is about as bad as double-posting to begin with because
it stops our members from focusing their efforts.
