Since I am a noob, can anyone (especially Linux users) recommend me sites that contain guides for Linux noobs. I've tried Linux before and I found it hard. I want to learn these things: Different types of distros The best way of partitioning Dual-booting XP and Linux (with XP as the default) How to install stuff Which goes where Most importantly, knowing your way around. Thanks for any help in advance! Also, Ubuntu was my first distro so I will use it again and seeing that it is now a different version, I would want to get my hands on it.
