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.

ATM my reboot is
Choose program: -Ubuntu
What I want is Choose Program:
Also, you should keep in mind that Ubuntu#2 was a failed download attempt and does not work. And i think deleteing Ubuntu#2 will make the boot to how i want it to.
So the question is, how do i delete Ubuntu#2? (its not the acutal name, its the one i gave it.)
Ive seen some youtube video where he had Ubuntu and XP load in different desk, dont know if thats how you call it.
The link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTRsLW0eet0, Around 1:26 he loads a XP desk while on linux.
So the question is, how do i run XP and Linux, but on different desk (or workplace, however u name it)
Sometimes when i click the "Menu bar" the custom one, it takes me a few clicks for it to work. Eg, when i click it, nothing happenes, after the 2-3th one, it works.
Some of my XP items have a blue font, this happened after i installed Ubuntu. for example my C:\Hard drive is in blue font. It is normally in black font. Some other files have it too. What does it mean?
It seems to me that the guy (?) is running xp inside a virtual machine (virtualbox). The basic idea is that you install virtualbox, then install xp into the virtual machine. vmware virtual machines provide tools to migrate existing xp installs to virtual machines so a new install isn't needed but I don't know whether that is possible yet with virtualbox.
Note: xp run inside virtual machines require a new license key if you already have a copy running on bare metal! So, technically, you would need two licenses. I believe this was changed starting with vista.
