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 somehow installed 2 versions of ubuntu on my computer. how do i uninstall them to start over? it ony shows me a black screen , but does say theres not enough room to do anything. i just need an easy way to uninstall please.
I was using the computer and an update popped up saying I needed to download the new version. so, I clicked on "yes". Halfway through, it went black, and hasn't worked since. It says there is no room for the programs and then shuts down again. Is there a way to remove one of the versions?When I type in my password, nothing happens. Just a black screen with a bunch of gibberish.

that is NOT two installs ,just a normal everyday "update" .
You installed Ubuntu on a way too small partition . There is no room left
reinstall using a larger partition
an update popped up saying I needed to download the new version.
Sounds like you were notified that an upgrade was available and you took the opportunity to do so. Upgrade is not the same as update, an upgrade will give you a new version so I expect if you were using Ubuntu, you upgraded to 11.04.
Could you post some partition information? Do you know how to get it? Is Ubuntu the only operating system you have? Do you have any Linux Live CD to use to get information?
