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.

my friend check the partion when you install linux and it shows you the hard disk first format it to blank and then make it to "linux native" then "format" and then "mount point". after you do that then start instalation
ok, I am new to Linux, so I will try to do as you say. I think this will require me to click the "Expert" option when I get ready to partition the drive prior to installing Linux... So let me retry the install and when I get to that point, I will let you know.
how do you have just 40. all this hda1-5 you are writing to me are more than 80 GB. Are you sure? okey. listen . go there in maxtor hda1 if i am right 32,7GB and erase everything.then do "linux native". "format". and then "mount point" choice "/".
I have a few buttons at the bottom of the screen one of them being "Create". This button then lets me choose between "Primary partition" or "Extended partition". And once I make a choice, it gives me the ability to choose mount points, as well as other options. These things I am just starting to learn.
