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.

so can you please answer my question please. What exactly are you wanting me to do. Boot in without the power cord plugged in,can get it to do this by pressing any button on the keyboard,and do the dmesg thing?
its a HP G6030ea with 1gb of ddr2 ram and a 160gb HD and a 64bt dual core AMD processor (turion i believe im in work so not too sure about that one)
The install was done properly and i have reinstalled Kubuntu 4 times now the cd was fine
i dont know how to check the md5 thingy you have mentioned.
I have noticed that this may be a known bug to do with the processor but i have no idea. I have also seen some comments elswhere that other Linux os's may not have this bug but i like Kubuntu.
Please note i didnt have this problem when i had Vista on my laptop and i installed XP once and didnt have the issues.
cheers i will give it a go. i have done a bit of looking about and it seems its a known issue with the amd64bit processors. Im gonna move onto fedora 11 next week to give that a go see what happens there. Luckily i still have a working desktop
