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.

First of all I'm spanish so my english is not that perfect but i'l try my best. secondly I'm not an expert at computers in fact, depending on your answers I might continue or I'l have to give up.
I tried to install ubuntu in my pc but it wouldnt let me do it because of a NOAPIC thing. the fact is that eventually a friend of mine took the hd to his place and installed it for me but what a nasty surprise when I put the hd back in my pc and the flippin' noapic warning came on again. the question is, should I dare to fix it myself or am I risking my pc 'health'? could anyone tell me if it's only a matter a couple of things from the boot system and thats it or on the contrary, it'd take an expert to do it?
thanks a lot and sincerely hope to become a rightful member of the linux comunity
