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.

FYI, Linux XP uses Gnome/GDM. According to their website, KDE is for hackers and sucks.
Yep, this is a quote from their website:
Forget about KDE. KDE is for hackers and that is why it sucks in end-user oriented distribution.
We are not supporting it in any way. You can install it from Fedora repositories and use it on your own risk.
Uh huh, these are the people I want working on my distro. Sure.
Thanks for the advice. Yes, I'm switching from Linux XP to Ubuntu, because Linux XP wants me to activate(register $20 for key).
Anyone available via Messenger that can guide me with installation? I need tutor any time from 8am-3pm central time and 12:30am-2am central time. I'd reformat my pc 3 times already trying to do it myself.
Here's what I did so far:
1 HD w/ 2 Partition w/ with NTFS format
I want to install Ubuntu on the other drive/partition where there isn't file yet, Drive D:\ where C:\ is Windows Vista
Some say I will need Partition Magic. But like i'd said I'd already partition it with Vista for 2. Also Ubuntu also come with it's own partition program that i can't remember, i think it's Gparted.
Anyone available? As soon as I get used to Linux, I will destroy MS.
