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.

What do you mean it is "in your directory?" .... What directory are you talking about? And why do you assume that you need to delete it? It may be an already mounted device.... Or it may be a duplicate... we don't know. Please explain how you got up to this point, and tell us what you were trying to do, and what you are currently trying to work on.
It appeared in my Homefolder.
I think that was when i installing the upgraded version from the previous version, initially it was unable to boot so i got stuck. later i download again but this time install with Flash USB and it went thru. anyway i am not really sure how i got this duplicated Filesystem.
i wanna delete it to get more space, my HD is 60GB only and sharing with XP dual booting. Keeping XP for back up to open Microsoft Office files.
It looks like you've done 3 installs - and the last one (the system you currently use) is small because of that.
As stated above by corp769, we can't know if you have anything in those other partitions you wish to preserve. I'm guessing not, but you are responsible for making that decision.
As you have a gparted liveCD, I'd suggest you boot that, and delete partitions /dev/sda7,8,9 and 10. Whilst there, you might want to expand (what currently is) /dev/sda11 to give yourself some more room in Ubuntu. Make it say 20 Gig - leaves plenty to grow either XP or Ubuntu in future.
You will also have to re-install grub - see here.
That's why it keep popping up telling me that i got not enough space to download or install other programs. i intend to maintain partitions for WinXP and Ubuntu. Will delete others partition as you advised. No worry, i am responsible for making that decision i just want more space for my Linux.
