Question


I was wondering where I could find a list of Linux commands, I am very new to Linux and I am switching over from Windows 98. I have created a new mashine and all I have is a 400 meg hard drive right now with TurboLinux 4.0 Workstation. I could only install the base install option so I only get a command promt and I am a bit stuck. I have a second hard drive and I would like to set it up and install a GUI, if possible.

The best way to find out about the different commands is to poke around in /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, /usr/sbin and /sbin. Also if you are using a shell with command completion you can type "a-tab-tab" and you will get a list of all commands in your path that start with the letter a. Here are a few URL's to get you started.
