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.

You need to install a package like this: linux-headers-3.9-1-amd64 and a package like this: linux-headers-amd64. You will have to replace the 3.9-1-amd64 with your own specifications. Since you didn't tell us what kernel you're using nor what architecture I can't be more specific than that.
Then post the results and we can tell you which one to choose. I'm guessing you need something like linux-headers-2.6.31-generic.
That's quite an old kernel you're running. What version of Ubuntu are you using?
Thanks for your reply and for increasin my knowledge regarding ubuntu.
I got following output:
~$ aptitude search linux-headers
v linux-headers -
v linux-headers-2.6 -
i A linux-headers-2.6.31-14 - Header files related to Linux kernel versi
i A linux-headers-2.6.31-14-generic - Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.31 on
i linux-headers-generic - Generic Linux kernel headers
Plz tell me how you are going to determine files using the above information.
Thanks for your reply. Actually i forgot this. However i tried to make a bootable disk using unetbootin. I checked the diskimage option and selected ubuntu (13.04 HMedia) and provided path for my ubuntu iso on my h/d and provided a space of 1MB.It created a bootable disk. Then I conected the bootable disk to the computer on which i have to install ubuntu and choose the bios option to boot from usb. I got unetbootin window which was showing default option. Below this window, it was written:
Press [Tab]to edit option
Automatic boot in 10 seconds
However if i press enter key, it restarts the 10 sec timer. Kindly guide me about my mistake.
After 10s it restarts the counter from 10 and goes back to 0.
I dont remember that i used unetbootin when i installed the version 9 of ubuntu. But i had windows 7 in my machine at that time. Kindly help me.
