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 am trying to get ubuntu to work from a usb hard drive i have installed it normally and using unetbootin neither have worked the same thing happens i boot the usb and it comes up with a black screen and a blinking cursor at the top left.
I dont know if this could effect anything but im trying to save whats on the disk by making ubuntu be on another partition ive heard of it working but i dont know.
I already use a partition manager EASEUS Partition Manager but what looks interesting about this is that it says it changes whether things are bootable or not ill check it out and get back to you in a couple of minutes.
I found something interesting that i should have the drive as fat32 and i reinstalled it onto the fat32 using unetbootin and something really weird happened when i booted it showed a boxed smiley with a cursor flashing at the top left corner.
