I am a new Ubuntu Linux user and, of course, have many questions. Thank you for the invitation to be a part of the Ubuntu community and I hope that my questions won't seem too newbe.

There are no newbish questions. Just ask anything you want to know. And welcome.

Welcome to forums, and to Ubuntu :D

Don't be afraid of asking stupid questions. If you provide enough information about your problem you'll get answers no matter what you're asking.. But it's also worth using the forum's search, as many problems have already been solved. Also, there's a nice Ubuntu 5.10 Starter Guide in gnome's help (in System/Help), it's really worth a look.

Not at all, easy questions are easier for us to answer and make us feel smart for answering one more question :)

The first question would be, is there a good beginning online tutorial that walks you through the basics of linux commands and the overall philosophy of Debian linux?

I need some further information.

I need information on how to obtain or create a single boot floppy to
boot a single local network PC, (without a hard drive), into an B-Badger
5.10 Ubuntu network server.

Thanks

Hi dfj,

I haven't tried it, but maybe this will give you a hint (or two)?

Preparing Files for TFTP Net Booting (http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch04s06.html.en) from debian.org.

You can post your experiences and then, maybe, we will have a how-to for later use? :D
