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.

Please try address each point one at a time and then come post back explaining what you have tried and what the problem is.
You just beat me to it. +1 to that.... These forums are for help and assistance, not to hire people to do your homework for you. If it is not homework, than please give us proof, and also what you have done so far, just like evo said.
