Thank you for the explanation knc1. Sometimes I can get Telnet to work, but sometimes it just wants to give me errors all the time.
But, I had to uninstall Ubuntu since I couldn't boot into it anymore. Upon boot it said some partitions/drives were not ready or not responding, and to sip with S, except it had yet to load the drivers for my keyboard, so I couldn't press S.
So far I've tried Linux Mint and Ubuntu, and both wouldn't boot. Mint installed fine, but after 30 minutes, would freeze when I tried to boot into it. Now I'm thinking CentOS, for stability (hopefully more stability than I've experienced). Any suggestions for which distro to use would be appreciated.
Obviously if I'm going to learn to program for my Kindle than it'd be better to have a Linux OS on my computer; if only one would work!
I'm trying my best to learn how to use (embedded) Linux, since mobile devices have always been more alluring to me than desktops and laptops.
