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 have reinstalled kubuntu about 3 times and as a side by side with windows 7 ,and cannot get it to be recognized at all let alone boot in any menu, although it shows it in my disc management as a partition , just boots to 7. tried live disc and use sudo grub and that doesnt work either as it says it doesnt recognize command.
I am running windows 7 home premium,on a gigabyte S series motherboard,64 bit 8 gigs ram,nvidea 8800 gt,intel quad processor,650 watts.after install has all ran normally,as side by side and making its own partition,all normally with no problems and says restart I get a disc check and no bootup options for kubuntu although it shows as a seperate partition in disc management,it shows up nowhere else.and just boots to 7 like it isnt there and apparently isnt installing the grub loader at all.I ran easy bcd to start it up and bcd says no grub installed. tried to run sudo grub from live disc and from kubuntu running off bcd,no luck,and says command not recognized.
