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.

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.

Hi everyone, as I said in the title of my reply, I am having almost the same problems installing Ubuntu. I have a PC that I want to dedicate to the installation and use of Linux, I am ready to even installed as the only OS in this PC. I had windows XP on this machine but I want to just get rid of it and launch my Linux adventure but I am running in the situation that even though I follow all the instructions in the download page of Ubuntu.com, something is just not doing what it is suppossed to. After the downloading is done, and I get the icon for the application for Linux and click on it, nothing happens. Should I just format the driver, buy or burn a Linux CD or should I just keep looking around for a better download?
Any advice would be really appreciated.
PS. The reason I am posting this problem here is because I could not find a way of posting my questions in a new thread. I apologize for this inconvenience.
