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 trying to install ubuntu 11.04 but I'm having trouble. I burned the ISO image and even checked to see if files were correctly burned. After booting from CD the ubuntu logo came up and then the screen went black.I tried like three times and then I realized that the options to proceed were there bu the screen was too dark to be seen. I could barely see anything so I couldn't proceed. My computer is an Acer aspire 5736z -4016 and I have Mobile intel(R) 4 series express chipset for video with a resolution of 1366x768. It might be my video card because it's week. I tried loading some games but it didn't work because of it. Any ideas?
good one, but I wish that was it. I tried that the first time but that wasn't the problem. It lets me choose the language but after that it's all dark. I never experienced this stuff before with ubuntu.
