    New To Linux


    Back in 1999 I made my first Linux Boot Disk. I did it through windows 3.1. But I never got a chance to just sit and learn the system. Now I want to learn it. I have Linux Ubuntu 11.10. I have already installed it once, and then found myself removing it. It isn't that I don't like it. It is just that my current computer didn't have enough hard drive space. And it was annoying me because I couldn't change the grub boot order around. I fear that it might take me a long time to learn it. After doing the install, and removing it. I decided that I want to put it on an external hard drive. That way I can take my time learning it without messing up my windows machines. Once I have learned what I want to learn, then I will go back to putting it on a computer.

    Welcome to LinuxForums!
    Take your time, and feel your way through it. Be prepared to break a few things along the way.
    But the fun really starts when you realize that you are learning how to fix those breakages.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help. Please keep it on the public boards.

    Welcome to the forum. I have an old laptop that I have Lubuntu installed with all my aps and docs on a 30 GB drive, and it is only half full. Choose a light distro and it won't take a lot of space. Glad to have you join us.
