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 was given a title "Modelling of Liposomes for drug delivery system" as my final year project. Hence, my supervisor introduces Linux to us which we are not familiar with at all as we are Windows user. Anyway, he gave us a brief tutorial on VMWare and the commands to install gromacs. I successfully installed VMWare, however, Im stucked here now. Where am I supposed to type in the commands? Is it at the terminal? When Im at the terminal, I see this: [root@localhost~]# Am I at the right track? I jotted down the commands. It's as follows:
1s [Is it 1(one)s/l(L)s/I(i)s?]
I double check with my friend, and she gave me a totally different command instead:
Any idea which is the right one? When i try installing the commands at terminal, I receive this msg "bash: Is: command not found"
Im very confused and not sure how else to proceed. Do advise. Thank you very very much in advance
OK, so gromacs is a Linux distribution for something to do with fourier transforms and the likes? ok, well the "ls" command is ls as in "list the files in this directory". It's really hard to know what you're really trying to do here. Clearly you're looking to compile and install some software from source code, but if this source code is not in the directory you're trying to work in, naturally you're not going to get the result you're after.
In general we don't know what gromacs is, what fftw is (i guess i'm roughly right there) or xmgrace / grace... and whether they exist or not, so that side we can't comment on too much. but as above, the "ls" command will always work in a bash window if you're typing in L S in lower case.
