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 just installed 11.04 32 bit (downloaded today) in Virtualbox (4.0.6), with host 64 bit Win7. I'm trying to get Unity working. I've searched and found references to the fact that the Host graphics card must support 3D, which I believe mine does (nVidia GeForce 7900 GTX). Also found some references to try the following:
After the OS install, I did this:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-guest-utils
Then rebooted and did this:
killall -9 gnome-settings-daemon && gnome-settings-daemon
I also installed the latest Guest Additions. In the VM settings I have the "3D" tick checked, and have 32M RAM allocated to video. But no Unity shows up, just normal desktop.
Since Virtualbox emulates its own graphics-card the card in the host is irrelevant, as long as it is powerful enough and has the functions that the emulated card has. A 7900GTX should be more than sufficient.
