In case you don't know yet, reading BSD documentation is a good way to learn about Linux/Unix. Here is an example. You can find the complete handbooks here, here, and here.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
