don't worry too much about these, they usually shouldn't go below -5, just try to ask a more precise question next time (without calling virtual machines crap); and if you include some information what you have already tried (maybe enough to provide an answer yourself) you may get upvotes instead. Just note that there are more specific StackExchange sites for unix/linux and ubuntu – Tobias Kienzler Jul 2 '13 at 6:45

Just make LiveCD or LiveUSB, boot your system from it, not hard drive, and you will have shortcut on the desktop to a script to install it.
Make sure you use option "Install along side my current OS", or chose the partition you made.
As far as commands, start with basic commands and then move on to advanced.
