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 recently downloaded the upgrade to 11.10 it caused some issues. How would I go about reverting back to my older version of 11.04? i still have the install disk I used. I don't know if that will make a difference.
Well what kind of issues are you having? Sorry to break it to you, but there is no official way to downgrade; Pretty much what I am saying is that you would have to completely redo Ubuntu. We can definitely assist you with the new issues that have arose though!
My screen had been blown up. All the sidebar and tool bar are bigger then before so they dont fit on the screen like they used to. Also anytime i open a new window i only get fourth of the page so its really large. Almost as if its spreading it across all four workspaces. It makes navigating extremely annoying. If i were to reinstall would i have to wipe my hard drive? if so how do i do that? at this point i think it would be alot easier to just reinstall 11.04
I have a dual-boot system (Win7 plus Ubuntu).
Everytime I boot, I get a brief GRUB screen which gives me the option to boot earlier versions of Ubuntu, ie: if I was running 11.10, I could boot the earlier kernel of 11.04.
As I do not run 11.10 (because I hate the new Unity interface), I cannot say whether this would revert you back you a different version with graphics drivers also from the earlier version, but it's probably worth a try. It can't hurt, and may save you hours of frustrating configuration attempts, or hours of reinstallation.
If you do not see the GRUB screen at boot-time, you can get a GRUB editor (eg: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/qgrubedito...on-editor.html ). This will allow you to set the default boot kernel, which, in turn, may allow you to boot into a system with graphics drivers which work properly.
