installing ubuntu logged in then asked to use sudo command

Asked by Greg Allman on 2010-07-22

I was installing Ubuntu 6.06.2 server I was asked to log in I did that. Now it says To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use sudo <command> then it says myname@ubuntumyname: ~$_. I can't figure out from "man sudo_root" which command to continue with the installation.

I 've decided not use ubuntu instead I installed Linux Puppy 2.0.5 it at least is a bit easier but after installing it I ran the Linux puppy without the CD and it was fine then I restarted the computer and got error 15.

Please tell some of your pc why you are installing not more supported 6.02 Ubuntu or totally unsupported here Puppy ?

I think I can install grub and I think puppy 2.0.5 is on the hard drive but I can't find it in gparted, because I use the live CD to boot it up then remove the CD and it works fine unless is it possible the The OS puppy is running off of the Ram?

Can you help with this problem?
