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.

Hi, I can't see long file names under Amigo Linux. It's based on ZipSlack 9.1. Both command line and Window Maker don't recognize file names longer than 8 characters with a three letter extension. I can't install tar.gz files like file.tar.gz using installpkg. I was hoping I could install LedIt 3.0. I can't see the longfile names that I created in Windows 9x created either.
I forgot to mention that I download files using Windows XP and tried to open them under Linux. The long file names that Linux created are ok. I also notice that all file names on my FAT harddrives have an asterisks at the end of the name.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Anyone know how I run an install script from the command prompt? I think the extension ends in "sh." I can't find the command name in the help documents. Obviously, I can't use pkginstall or the package manager. I can install programs by double clicking the script in my window manager. Just wondering.
I can see long filenames if I go to /mnt/hdc6. hdc6 corresponds to my second harddisk and third partition. It has a FAT32 partition. The first and second partition on this drive has a FAT16. I can't see the long file names on my first drive that has a FAT32 partition. Weird.
