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.

I got a book from my neighbor and I am trying to learn fedora. There are a few questions in the book and I have answers to most of them and a few that I am stumped on.
1. What file did this line come from? mailnull:x:47:47::/var/spool/sbin/nologin - sbin?
2. If you didn't know what directory the file wtmp is in, what command would you use to locate it?
3. You want to make and EXACT copy of a file called phil.txt and name it to bob.txt-- you could use the cp command. but there is another we use that will do it. Write the command to accomplish that copy. Be sure to put spaces on each side of each object in the command.
4. How many processes do YOU own in the shell you are in? 40
5. Tell me how many lines are in a file .bashrc in your home directory? If you do not have it, any bash files will do. Your answer should be in the form: 3 lines, found with the command xxxxxxxxxx where you will give the number of lines, and the command of how you found it.
Yes, the answers are by the questions. I didnt need the questions answered, just needed to know id they are right. I am not enrolled in school. If that were the case I could ask an instructor or a class forum. I am doing this on my own as a personal challenge to myself.
