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.

Anyway Ubuntu updated successfully I get a message saying SMBus uninitialized upgrade bios.
The threads that I did see their system wouldn't boot all they way, mine boots and can get to internet, but extremely slow. I haven't tried ubuntu on this laptop to see how it performed, but I think I'll put squeeze in the box and see if it performs better even though it's a Squeeze machine already.
I have that one working I still need to do the guest additions, the iso is already there just have to initiate.
Now that I know that I can do this, I'm back to original question.
The os that's on usb needs to be converted, Virtual box has a vdi converter, it converted from iso to vdi.
Will Virtual Box do the conversion and do I just import the hdd?
Actually I thought I read that VB can clone a drive.
