Also, please use thread title that describe your question/problem (as you're requested to when posting a new thread). Doing so will help attract people who can help.

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

In addition to what Nylex said: I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem or query.

Just a few links to aid you in gaining some understanding;

Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide
LinuxSelfHelp
Getting Started with Linux
Bash Reference Manual

Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Linux Home Networking

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
