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.

when i ls >> /dev/lp1 i get permission denied im using redhat 9 sheike from the gui i changed the owner to root and to my username same problem. this happens in ubuntu and dsl. what am i doing wrong. please help me.
means append the output of the "ls" command to the file "/dev/lp1", which is character device. No matter how hard you try you will never be able to do that, and you don't want to. If you want to print try the "lp" command:
I thought the permission denied meant ownership but it wasn't. /dev/lp is a program and it did not have permission to execute. so now I solved it. but still no output to my printer. well that's for another day. sorry for not checking in sooner.
