Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

all of your questions are actually illogical or irrelevant, if i'm understanding the 2nd one right in the first place...
1) you can put a script *anywhere* there is no special location.
2) you mean the $ sign? no, that is just an example command prompt. it is used in code to clarify exactly how to run a program.
3) this is not windows, files are recognized by what they actaully are, not what characters just so happen to be on the end of it. the use of .sh is a handy visual convention, but absolutely non essential
i guess you're just asking how to make a script exectuable? run "chmod +x scriptname" and then you canjust run the script as if it were a binary executable.
Distribution: Fedora core 5 Ubuntu 6 Slackware 11(if and when I get it running)
Oh thanks for the help. I will read those and start using my other name.
If for instance i had someof my poetry on root in fileA and someof my school assignments in fileB is there anyway I can make those files viewable for other users, which consequently is me and myself hehe.
Where, of course, you need to replace everything in angle brackets (including the brackets) by the actual names you use.
See man mv and man chown for details.
Also, note that info --apropos <keywords> and man -K <keywords> will search the on-line documentation for any command whose description uses that keyword. (And, of course, info info and man man will give you details about the info and man commands.
