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 tried to install oracle 10g to my Ubuntu 10.10 but i always get this error every time i try. can any body tell me what am lacking. the error is "E: Package 'oracle-xe' has no installation candidate"
It means the package you asked for, oracle-xe, doesn't exist in your release of Ubuntu. Try doing a search under using "oracle" as a keyword and see what comes up. What made you think that there was a package called oracle-xe?
Why don't you download an 10g-ex RPM from Oracle
and use alien. Also, you need to register with Oracle.
If you want to be conservative use a live CD to test it.
Also, search on the web using 'ubuntu help' and check out the community
Peruse it alot first instead of forums.
