I've recently partnered with a local used computers shop to do basic

I can also do more specialized work as you ask. I've helped several
people on this list. What you describe can take between 2-4 hours, but I
charge a fixed amount for such jobs. My rates double if you stand by me,
and I offer 20% discount if you pre-pay with Bitcoin or cash. My Ubuntu
experience is detailed here:

Contact me off-list (email, webform or phone) and we can talk:

A few pointers:
* http://debian-handbook.info/download/stable/debian-handbook.pdf
* http://www.ubuntupocketguide.com/faq.html
* http://ubuntu-manual.org/downloads

Ask (and research) your questions here:
* On this list :)
* http://www.reddit.com/r/ubuntu
* http://askubuntu.com/

You can also borrow quite a few Ubuntu (and GNU/Linux) books from public
libraries in Montreal. If you go to the Mile-End library you will find
most of the ones listed under "Ubuntu Linux" at
http://nelligan.ville.montreal.qc.ca/search*frc (most were donated by
me) - but they are not very recent.

I hope this is useful, don't hesitate to ask more questions on this list
(or off-list, as appropriate).
