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.

well i'll describe what went on, so, at first it was a good boot up, 24 degrees temperatures running photoshop not half bad, i go on Firefox and again all seems fine, shoots up to 30 degrees as i play some music. as it normally does, i go on youtube to look at some trailers, it doesn't load. so i close it and go on a couple of sites, the sites stop loading, and the internet disconnects on me, which is the norm, really and i do what i usually do, take out the dongle and put it in again. but instead of working this time, it gives me a black screen full of codes and the music i play runs in a loop of about 2 seconds of the track, i had to do a forced shutdown, which didn't feel good.
i couldn't get any of the codes down. but does anyone know what this is? and what caused it?
everything upon the incident inside the PC sounded normal. nothing was whining and no fans were running high RPM.
thanks if you can help me out here. this is the first time i've seen this, and if i have to fork out for hardware the 7th time the thing is getting scrapped!
P.s Running ubuntu 11.04 on the classic interface.
