Ubuntu beginner's guide


I have seen the starter's guide, but is there a Ubuntu guide for big time novices, I am currently using Mandrake, but I haven't done anything with it yet, so I could easily install or uninstall it no prob, so can anyone help me?

I am not sure which guide you are talking about, but I found this one extremely useful:

http://www.ubuntuguide.org/

it has practically everything you need to know to configure Ubuntu nicely _after_ you've installed it. The installation is pretty simple too, so there should not be any problems in there. It is not as pretty as Mandrake's installer, but easy nonetheless.

Good luck!

I couldn't install it right, the GUI wouldn't install, I found Mandrake incredibly easy to install, but Ubuntu woudn't work, so I had to re-install Mandrake
