Help with Basic Linux Commands
New to linux? A reader today said I need to know some of the basic commands for a linux server that I accquired. Turns out I wrote the book on Linux. Well, one of them anyway...
My book "The No BS Guide to Linux" is now online, in full text format.
Lowfat Linux is a tutorial for Linux, a version of Unix that runs on ordinary personal computers. I created it for people who want to learn the basics of using Linux, and thereby Unix, without getting bogged down in too much detail or technobabble.
Because Unix is the foundation for much of the Internet, many people are using or encountering it nowadays. As the Internet grows, Unix will become more popular, creating an array of new opportunities. If you're simply curious, looking to gain new job skills, or thinking about Linux as a low-cost platform for operating your own Internet server, you'll benefit from this knowledge.
This site has been carefully crafted and edited so that both the novice and the more experienced computer user will get what they want -- the know-how to use Linux effectively.
You'll find plain-English information here about using Linux on a personal computer or on a shell account provided by your Internet Service Provider. After a brief history and overview of Linux, you'll find a concise and occasionally light-hearted treatment of these topics:
- File systems
- Useful commands
- Text editors
- Data manipulation
- Shell programming
- Email tools
- Compression, Encoding and Encyyption
- Accesing DOS and Windows Files
- Adding & Removing Software with RPM
The site is free to browse or search, at http://LowfatLinux.com. That should get you started!
