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.

Distribution: Ubuntu, Debian, Various using VMWare
Having read through your other threads in this forum, it stikes me that you have an installation problem, perhaps caused by bad CDs, or undetected hardware.
Try re-burning the installation CDs, having checked the MD5sum of the downloaded ISOs to make sure that they were downloaded correctly. After you burn the CDs, recheck the MD5sum of the CD, and then you can be sure the CD is ok.
Alternatively, if the problem is undetected hardware, try Ubuntu which AFAIK has pretty good hardware detection.
Go back to windows. Your attitude sucks. If you're not prepared to try anything and are too lazy to learn anything new then linux is not the system for you. You're better suited to windows. Or Etch-a-sketch.
jeez man....it hurts to see someone so harsh towards a noob...hell im a noob, but i try to learn everything i can..and/or fix the probs myself.
either way, i had the same prob with mandrake 10.1 i think what you have to do is what he said, re-dl the iso images(powerpack or official better)...after that in the middle of the installation there will be a screen that has your gfx card and resolution...monitor and all that crap, there will be some options there and a test button press it and a kde desktop should show up, else something is wrong, keep messing with the resolution, gfx card and/or monitor until you get it right...thats the only advice i can give. Windows sucks(i use it because of the vast choices of progs it has) so do not go back to it :P
