Start your own thread, in the most appropriate section of the site. This is a tutorial, not a support section.

Before posting that thread, read the 2nd link in my signature.

This site has changed a great deal since this thread was started.

Share a link to the post you're quoting and someone here may be able to get you sorted out.

Excuse me, I am a newbie of linux. What is the correct order of reading the tutorials in this website? The default order of the tutorials of the beginner level confuses me. It starts with the introduction of Linux and then jumps directly to MAN Pages and Other Information.

So how do i get started
Go to ubuntu.com and download an iso. Burn the image to a dvd and set your bios boot order to
Code:
1. DVD
2. hard drive
3. floppy
and boot the DVD. It will run linux from the DVD and you can test it out. If you like it you can install it from the DVD. Be careful installing it. You want to install it beside windows.

@PsychoHermit - the persons you are responding to posted 4 years ago and 2.5 years ago and have not been seen since. You can see when they were last active (not since those posts) by running your mouse over their avatars.

I thought I would give you a heads up while you are online.

I will run through this tutorial and clean it up a bit, soon.

Enjoy your Linux, and stay safe.

BTW welcome to linux.org, and I see that belated birthday wishes are in order :)

Welcome to Linux.org's "Getting Started with Linux: Beginner Level Course". If you're new to Linux and want to find out how to use the fastest growing operating system today, all you have to do is follow these lessons and you'll be using Linux efficiently in no time.

Getting Started with Linux: Beginner Level Course is designed as a self-study course. One of the things that makes this course unique is that at any point during a course, you can add a note, or comment. This is done in the comments bar on the right hand side of the screen. These comments can be made public or private, and can take any form that you like. Feel free to use them to ask questions, answer other users questions, post code updates, or suggest different methodologies for solving problems.

Linux is a very popular operating system, and this course is followed by thousands of people each day. Due to this, there are a lot of people online who are also in the process of learning it. So please feel free to ask any questions that you have and someone in the Linux Community will probably answer you! Also, this whole site, including the courses are regularly moderated. If you don't get an answer to a question, we will do our best to answer it for you. In addition, please send us your suggestions for how we can improve the courses, any typos that you have noticed, or any errors that you have encountered.

If you're ready to start learning about Linux, you may start at our table of contents or you may want to jump right into lesson one What Is Linux?.
