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'm trying to master CVS and need some help. I'm writing a program and want to make daily snapshots to a local CVS repository. Unfortunately, all CVS tutorials I could find on the web don't answer all my questions. The main question is, from which directory I have to type this or that command. Assume that:
1. After the long day&night of coding I tag the latest revision:
/home/user/workspace$ cvs tag -R v16_05_14 Myprog Shell output:
cvs tag: Tagging Myprog
2. Now I try to port the revision to the CVSROOT repository:
/home/user/workspace$ cvs commit -R v16_05_14 Myprog Shell output:
cvs commit: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory
cvs commit: nothing known about `v16_05_14'
cvs commit: Examining Myprog
cvs commit: sticky tag `v23_04_14' for file `Myprog/some_file' is not a branch
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!
What's wrong with that, should I do it another way or type these commands from another directory? Just some questions from a total newbie!
P.S. Recommendation how to do the same thing in SVN/Mercurial/Git/Fossil/Bazaar/you_name_it.. are welcome too, as my plans are to master more sophisticated version control tools than CVS as well.
