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.

That's okay, it seems to be working fine. I'm just confused, and was wondering especially if it could cause any problems, like for some reason I added something somewhere without realizing it that will cause problems in the future or something, from doing it this way - and if maybe I was overlooking a very simple explanation of what it's doing.
With all this information, you don't think it could cause serious problems?
My themes are still very badly affected by something. In the Appearance Preferences window, where you choose themes, almost none of the themes but Unity is even showing up correctly. And when I choose a theme, it won't even be applied correctly (in fact, it will pretty much look the way it looks in the window, unless I choose another and then choose again. So I have to pick one and then the other for it to even be applied, and then when I restart it'll be all messed up again.
If there's any way at all these could be connected in any way I would definitely uninstall this, and install something else, I might anyways. It seems like I'm having real problems with this. I always use checksum checks on the iso downloads, too. Maybe something happened between downloading the iso and burning it to the CD.
'joeBuffer' maybe you should get a little more background with how GNU/Linux is used and maintained.
I'm working on it.
I've been able to partition (custom partitioning) Ubuntu, Gentoo, Slackware, etc. without confusion or problems, but I need to read more about this specifically (until I don't feel like I'm confused or missing something), and about Linux in general.
I wanted to add that I'm sure it was burning the CD that caused my theme problems, etc. When I was burning the openSUSE CD, Brasero froze up, and nothing was happening soon after starting. Then I closed it up and started over, and I had problems with my themes (that I know of). I quit using the CD, now.
Part of the confusion came from reading about the MBR only having information on the primary partitions (which would include the extended partition, but not the logical partitions) so I thought maybe I didn't understand what I was doing.
