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 decided to make a folder into which i would store any html/css pages i made. The new folder i named new_pages is located in /Home/Username. I then put three new html/css pages into the new_pages folder no problem. But now when i try to open the new_pages folder in order to edit one of the pages stored there i am informed:
The file file:///home/username/new_pages could not be loaded,
as it was not possible to read from it.
Check to see if you have access to this file.
I did go to /Home/username/new_pages right clicked on the folder and then selected Properties -> Permissions and made sure that the Owner, Group, and Others categories each had the same option "Can View & Modify Content" and finally clicked on OK. But i still can access the new_pages folder.
So i went to the Main Menu -> System -> File Tools -> File Manager - Super User Mode and then typed in my password. But i could not locate the new_pages folder?
This is really doing my head in. So could someone come to my rescue please before i start pulling all my hair out! Any help and advice is really appreciated. thanks DD
In Linux, capitalization matters, so /Home/Username, /home/username and /Home/username are three different directories. If you're not paying attention to capitalization, that could be the whole problem.
Since no-one else has mentioned this, please use better thread titles in future. By "better", I mean ones that say something about the problem you're having. When you post a thread, you are told that tiles like "help me" are bad..
