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 am trying to make a bootable external hard drive using my Acer P110 and install Kali Linux 1.0.9a.
Here is the scenario , when i use the only tool that works, it creates on my external hard drive a partition , the same size with the kali linux 1.0.9a.iso 2.8GB of size . But my external hard drive is 500 GB(465 useable).
My question is , how can i utilize the remaining unallocated space , because before i migrate to Windows 7 to Linux , i need to backup many file and i only have 1 external hard drive. A whooping 157GB of backup copying back and forth for the 3rd time today , with 20MB/s max speed using USB 2.0 , started since 9 hours ago because RUFUS did not work, it has problems with Kali , and it was too late before i find out , so now back to square 1 and i will use Win32Disk Imager now.
Now, my question is , can i just increase the size of the allocated partition with ISO(will it affect the installation or so?) , or i need to create a new partition for the backup?
P.S i am new to linux its my first time , i decided last night to learn Penetration Testing instead of playing wow for 6 years straight , my life could had been better. But actually i know nothing in linux its my first time and this environment is new to me, in windows i am a professional. I have no power here.
