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 have been using wxp-I have loaded Ubuntu to 4gb USB.
I have searched videos as to how to use Ubuntu
and they only cover the basic desk top.
What I need to understand is.
When you go to a web page and try to save(link)
how do you do that ?? (wxp favorits)
And how do you create a short cut,where do you put it (desktop ??) (folder ??)
Also where do I find the answers to BASIC questions BEYOND welcome to ubuntu video??
You can ask your questions here at LQ or on the Ubuntu forums, but you really need to provide a better heading than "Help Me!!".
If you want people to read your post, put a short description of the problem in the title. Also, don't ask too many different questions in the same post. You're more likely to get a good response if you put your questions in separate posts.
Adding web sites as bookmarks/favorites is not so much a OS function as a browser feature. Which web browser are you using?
The creation of shortcuts on the other hand is very much a Ubuntu-specific issue. Unfortunately I'm no Ubuntu user, but I'm sure someone will be around who can answer you better. Meanwhile, you could take a look here and see if that thread contains an answer to your question.
Since xp deadline 4-14 I an trying to see if I can handle Ubuntu
I tryed in the past an gave up because I could not find answers to my questions

I was using Ubuntu v12.04 on thubb drive,Is it limited to what you can do?
A definitive maybe. It depends upon how you got it there. If you did an actual install it would be the same as being installed to a standard hard drive. Since you indicate that you have a 4GB flash drive, I doubt that is the case as a basic install of the most current release takes 5GB. So how did you get Ubuntu on the flash drive? Did you use a program like unetbootin or pendrivelinux? If so, did you select the option to create 'persistence'. If not, then you have a Live CD on a flash drive which is a read-only filesystem and any changes you make will not be saved on reboot.
Thank you-- this imfo will be very helpful
Right now I have anouther problem I downloaded ubuntu 12.04,to thumb drive,it worked,that was when I found all the questions above.
