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'm running Ubuntu Jaunty and I've always used Firefox, problem is that the version of Firefox I now have keeps crashing and I have to force quit it.
I've now decided to use opera for a change and it looks good but when I try to watch a Youtube clip (not tried it with anything else), the page loads ok but the actual clip box isn't there. At least it doesn't appear on screen but if I mouse over the blank space I can right-click and open it in Galeon for example, so it is there after all!
You need to install the flash plugin in order to watch youtube videos (and many other things as well). Just install the appropriate Ubuntu package for your system and off you go. I assume Opera will use the same plugin as everyone else. Check on the Opera website to see if there are any specific instructions for installing the plugin.
