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 just starting to use Ubuntu 11.10. So far I have used it as a trial as a boot-able device on a laptop and love it so far. I am currently in the market for a new computer. I want to either put this OS on a netbook or a laptop, but i don't know which is the best way to go and need some advice? I just need it for practicing, but I will have files and other features as well so I need some suggestions.
I have got ubuntu 11.10 on a toashiba lappy with 11.04 everything worked straight away, I have run earlier ubuntu on dells all ran ok no problems, saying that wireless seems to be the biggest headache. Dose everything work ok from the disk you are using if so then there should be no problem on the machine. 1 thing I would say is when you install have the machine connected to internet by cable so if any drivers are needed they should get downloaded while installing.
