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 am new to Ubuntu, I installed the latest version and when i turn it on i get like a distortion of the screen, i would gladly post a picture of it but i have no where to post it here. I am running Amd Opteron 175 with DFI Expert and GeForce 7800GT i made a partition on my Vista, any help would be great.
Guys I uploaded the pictures as you can see it has the distorted window in background and it just sits there saying 128%, any help would be great.
Sorry, but I don't understand this. The pictures you post say something about checking a partition. AFAIK, that only happens when you are INSTALLING from the CD, not AFTER it is installed. I also don't get why it would say 128%? Like, 100% is not enough?
Are you sure that you tested Ubuntu on the Live CD first? You actually booted Ubuntu from the Live CD and bypassed Windows completely -- ie Windows never started up at all, only Ubuntu did?
Did you try to install Ubuntu inside of Windows using WUBI, or did you try to install it directly on the hardware?
I really don't understand fully what is going on here.
Thank you for your time, and all your help. I got it to install and i update the Nvidia drivers. All is great, now trying to learn Linux, I use to use Sun Solaris in 1994 so kind forgot how to do all of this.
