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.

1. My comment made perfect sense to anyone not a smug-a-hole. In fact scroll up, you'll find others exactly like it (only some a little more "colorful" than mine)
2. Finding the solution amid all the smug, arrogant comments like yours makes RTFM much more viable
3. I didn't tell him they shouldn't use SUDO, please find the place where I said that, or ask for your money back on that Hook-on-phonics course which is obviously not working for you. I said that its possible you can't give out the superuser password, which is why telling him to use SUDO without pointing out that you'd need the password or showing him how to set the password file to not require one, made no sense.
4. What "own ideas", are you referring to? I didn't have any others than those, that's why I came in looking to see what you "experts" might have. After the fourth of fifth smug comment like yours, I gave up.
But I do have one question for you. When did they get computers in Alabama?
I mean, don't you need electricity and all for that?
