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.

Post more information on what you have done and what didn't work. What distributions have you tried and where did you download them?
Did you check the download? Did you burn it to CD as an image? Did the installation begin? Did it stop at some point? Were there any error messages? What operating system are you currently using?
I am running Windows Xp on a emachines desktop computer. I am trying to put my downloaded file edubuntu-10.10-dvd-i386 on to a Dvd , I have tried TDK dvds but they didn't work so i got Memorex thinking It might. Neither worked. I have used Infrarecorder, Imgburn, and Active@ ISO Image file Burning Software. All have fail right after I would start burn.

Just change "sudo apt-get remove xxxx" to "sudo apt-get install xxx" and get rid of the "&& sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" at the end. That should install the edubuntu parts into any ubuntu version.
