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.

Hi, I am running Tango Studio which rides on Ubuntu. I want to use VirtualBox OSE to setup different operating systems and further my networking carerr. But when going to start the virtual machine I get an error
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908)
Please install the virtualbox-ose-dkms package and execute 'modprobe vboxdrv' as root.
So I go to Synaptic and upgrade the packages because my skills are lacking in a terminal. It gives me an error saying to check the make log for DKMS make.log for virtualbox-ose-3.1.6. Here is that error:
DKMS make.log for virtualbox-ose-3.1.6 for kernel 3.0.0-19-lowlatency (x86_64)
