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 used the one from the repo (as is customary in Linux) and, yes, installed, running, but there's not a lot of "pie" (disk) left to enjoy...I was sniffing tryu my collection of harddrives to see if I could fo a clean install ad retry...but the stoppages...dont happen, I just dont get any tasks...
OK...here is what I'm thinking.
The version I had all the issues with was from the link download.
The one I changed to was from the repo. That is what is in the laptop now.
So, I guess the question is which version do you want run with?
Update - (something to read as you log back in:
In the disk useage screen, I notice the second "disk" coloring from blue to pink...
It reports 4.5Gb available, 49,5 used, the latter fluctuates, I've fot an average useage of 0.73 (per Top) and virtually no network traffic to and/or from the box...
Keeping this box running on the net...
(just what does that thing do anyway?)
it's a ***dows program...I set stuff up in such a way that this stuff cannot run...
It's just the passiveness that baffles me...this thing sits there and occasionally, the disk colors red, grey, gree or blue, average use is around 97Mb...for the rest, well, this is not much to look at...
