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.

Every time I type any command like mkdir /x in-witch x= the rest of the code the thing jest wont work.
I know that after trying almost ever command mentioned in about 7 different web sights I should probably give it up,
But the possibility that something could require mounting a HD or something is to compelling.
Could you please tell us exactly what the problem is, because your post doesn't tell us much. What does "won't work" mean? Post error messages and what exactly you're typing, as we can't see what's on your screen.
Hi Iv tried almost every script that uses that command by typing a search fore linux mkdir in Google only to find that nun of them would work for what they say they do,
But an example wold be in the case of mounting a CD drive or a HD for example.
If nobody can tell me a reason that this command wouldn't work, then could someone tell me a way around ever having to use this in a command say to create a directory using some other command that could be used in the same way?
Generic answer is to right-click in whichever directory you want to create a new directory and then select the appropriate item from the menu. If you want more specific instructions, you'll have to tell us which file manager you're using. What do you mean by "And will it still do all the same things?"?
Ill probably find the answers I'm looking fore but not today so goodbye Ill come back after I find the method I was looking for so I can tell everyone what worked in my testing all the commands I can find again.
I don't know... I might be way off here not completely understanding what your problem is but did you actually try to use "mkdir /testdir"?
In that case try it as root or if you want to do it as a regular user just strip the slash from the command and it will be created in your current directory (if you have write permission that is). I.e. "mkdir testdir".
