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 wondering how I can:
1) list the contents of the top-level/directory into a new file entitled slashroot.lst
2) list the contents of the /bin directory into a new file entitled bin.lst
3) list the contents of the .etc directory into a new file entitled etc.lst
4) list the contents of the /var directory into a new file entitled var.lst
5) cause the contents of the four files just created to be contained in a new file entitled 4dir.lst and in order of the preceding steps.
6) cause the contents of the newly created 4dir.lst file to exist in another new file entitled 4dirsort.lst and sorted alphabetically
7) cause every line containing the tex "gnome" in 4dirsort.lst to be displayed on screen
8) cause the first 10 lines and the last 10 lines of the 4dir.lst file to be displayed to the screen
9) change current directory to home directory
10) list the contents of teh /root directory, including hidden files, into a new file entitled root.lst
Thanks to anyone who can provide assistance to and help me with these questions.
This sounds like homework to me. If you want us to help you on your homework the first thing to do is to show us what you have already done and where you have problems. We will for sure assist you if you have problems, but don't expect us to do your homework for you.
