The Newbie's Linux Manual

>> Home

Because I use Red Hat Linux, there's the occasional reference to Red Hat Linux. This does not mean however that this is a Red Hat Linux manual. It is a Linux manual.

Another thing you should know, is that this manual only ever uses the default 'bash' shell. Reference to other shells only helps to complicate matters for those new to Linux.

Hopefully this manual cuts through all the cryptic nonsense, to get straight to the information you need. Enjoy...
