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.

LQ users are not in the habit of doing your homework for you. You'll learn a lot more by doing it yourself. Of course if you encounter problems or errors you can always turn to us for help and advice. If you show us what you have done already we might give you some pointers. In the meanwhile you can have a look at Google and do a search for some online documentation, for example this one.
Thanks for the responses. I guess i might not have worded my question well. What I need help is understanding the string grunix I know about the pipe redirection tool, but I am confused as to what the string "grunix" means and how it is supposed to execute.
A string is just a combination of characters, in this case to be used with a tool to catch the instances of that string you encounter in the password file. Have a look into grep:
Thanks. I was able to use grep to write the command. My problem is using the pipe to come out with the same output. Below is what I did and the results. Please look at it and let me know if I am right or wrong.
