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.

What is 6.06? What distro are you using? Is it debian, like stated in this "message?" Normally, I see something like this when I burn a LIVE image to disc, and boot from it. Could you tell us how you are getting this error? You need to be more descriptive about your posts, and give us more details to better assist you.
The reason we move to newer releases is to resolve problems like this. It may have worked once, but as there is no longer any support for such an old version, there may not be much to be done about it. Do you have any flash media? USB drives can be made bootable to install Ubuntu from.
Are you still using the same PC on which you previously had Kubuntu installed, the one which you now have windows 7 on?
You didn't indicate when you see this message. Booting almost any Linux CD will show that message or one similar. The Kubuntu version you are using is over 5 years old.
Buy a blank CD or USB thumb drive and try a currently-supported release. Kubuntu 6.06 is a waste of time since it is no longer supported in any way. Surely your time is worth more than an inexpensive blank CD?
