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.

OK, maybe this is not the correct place, then maybe it is, I did look around and this is the only place I found. Here goes, when attempting to d/l I get this
XML Parsing Error:syntax error
Line Number 1, Column 1:
looks like the file has become corrupted somehow. Please notice that you didn't actually tell us what you're trying to dowload somethign WITH though! I'll put my psychic hat on and guess at firefox or mozilla. If this is just related to your personal configuration of it, i'd suggest deleting ~/.mozilla and starting anew. if it's system wide, reinstall the applcation.
Yes you are right, it is mozilla/firefox that i am using, I am sorry for not being more discriptive. Now what do you mean, or how would I go about deleting mozilla and starting afresh, I thought I did that and was sadly mistaken, I thought I knew how, but obviously I was sadly mistaken. If you could give me some insight on this I would greatly appreciate it. Or should I dump ubuntu and start over with a frsh install? I am able to 'surf the web' , go wherever I want to go. I even have or did install since using apt-get plug-ins for firefox, I just can not seem to d/l anything? Maybe I should try and google it, I will reply back if I can get this fixed on my own! Thank you!
OK, I was wrong about googleing it, I can not seem to find what i need to fix it, have tried a few things with no luck, so, what did I do, I dumped ubuntu completely and reinstalled it, now I am getting a not well formed error. What am I doing wrong? Turning on the pc?lol.or owning one?lolplease tell me what I can do!
Well, I am not really sure how I did it, but I did get rid of the error, all I did was use the system>administration>synaptic package manager, then i just clicked on mark all for download to see what would happen, then apply, it did something to mozilla-firefox and I also got the flash plugins installed, now it is fine? Thanks for trying anyways!
