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'm in need of a good long vacation I think . I'm not sure if it has to do with the way apt-get works but when I run the script it only processes the first line and then exits. I don't know however get the error you're getting, so I'm a bit lost there. But playing around here at work I found an easier solution.
sudo apt-get install `cat p2install.txt`
(cat p2install.txt is between back-ticks so that command gets executed and replaces it with the contents of the file).
That one command should process the entire list in p2install.txt file, including any dependencies if needed.
the output to this command was :
"E: could not lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11:resource temporarily unavailable)
E: unable to lock tha dminsitration directory (/var/lib/dpkg), is another process using it?"
