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.

In my project, I need to work with QEMU, but for the first step when I tried to download QEMU my machine throughs error like this...
cot@boss:~$ sudo apt-get install qemu
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
qemu : Depends: qemu-system (>= 0.12.5+dfsg-2) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
What does it mean...? Whether my hardware is not supporting..?
Processor : Pentium Pro, and I am using my system with 2 GB RAM
If you say yes to the reason...
Kindly share me suggestions, to proceed further, to another VM elsewhere...
What did you expect to happen?
Have you tried to actualy connect to the localhost VNC server with a VNC viewer to see the VM's graphical output?
qemu is command line you know, it has no graphical interface built in.
If you need a graphical interface, you should install it separately. There are a few available - aqemu, virt manager etc.
I use virt-manager, it has many options (including docked console view) and it works really well once you get the hold of it.
PS for video qxl is the best option, and make sure you use spice channel if you want graphical interface in the guest and screen resize/copy+paste support.
Other than that, 256 MB wont work with Ubuntu live cd if you want to run the desktop, you need at least 512 MB and i have doubts about the ability to run Unity on virtualized environment without 3d support (maybe fallback mode will work).
