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 have read the similar threads but they didn't help much. I am trying to install Java and it asks me to type su in terminal and then enter my root password, I do this and it says it faild to verify my password. So I tried to open my home folder and it simply said "Permission Denied".
I am running on Ubuntu and the other threads only mention Lilo or something like that. The only thing I can think is the problem is that my dad got on and changed the log in session but I don't know what the default was before he got on and he did set the new one as defualt and I guesse it just dosn't allow me to use password proteced files. What should I do?
