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.

ive fedora (not workin) + windows xp in my pc. linux was installed first, its also the default on dual booting
i need to erase fedora and replace it by ubuntu. im new at this and have no idea what to do
any help would be mostly welcome
Put in the ubuntu cd/dvd, boot from it, and when it asks you which partition to load onto, select the one where your existing Fedora installation is. Be sure to select "format" on that partition, so it will blow everything there away, and load fresh. Also be sure to select the right partition....
Read the above post. If you put the disk in and boot from it, select the Fedora partition to install ubuntu on. Tell the installer to format it...fedora will be erased, because the disk will be formatted, before ubuntu is installed onto it.
If you want to install ubuntu on top of what's already there (triple boot), finish the install, boot into ubuntu, and format the fedora partition manually. Don't know how else to explain it simpler...if you format the disk, it's gone....
well ive to define partitions manually otherwise it will partition windows. im doin that now, so that i erased fedora (i hope) and then select forward and get the following message: no root file system is defined. please correct this from the partitioning menu
