Wow... if all of us sent all of the available documentation, software, and advice we could, your Yahoo mail account would be filled up in a few seconds.

Luckily for you, though, there's so much information on the net (and so many new people coming to use Linux) that it is not hard to find enough to get started. I just tossed "linux beginner tutorial" into Google and it came back with what seems to be a bunch of information that might be useful to you. Here's a list of sites that might be particularly helpful:
http://www.linuxlinks.com/Beginners

If you have any specific questions, this very forum should be quite helpful.

This is not enough specific. We could end up sending half the content of the Internet to your mailbox

Have you installed Linux yet, or are you still thinking about it?

If you have installed Linux, what distribution have you installed?

What are you planning to do with your Linux computer? Do you want to learn programming (what language?), system administration or do you want to know how an operating system works?

I'm willing to help if you know what you want help with.

1) So you have't installed yet I assume? Just running a Live CD?
2) Gnome is a Desktop Enviroment - not a distro
3) Knoppix - Live CD - What do you want to know how to do?
4) Google is your friend
5) Lots of info here.

Hi again!

Gnome is a desktop environment that runs on a Linux computer. It contains the stuff you see on the screen, like menus, start bar, control center and some applications. If you want to know more about Gnome, start reading here:
http://www.gnome.org/learn/

However, if you use Knoppix then you have KDE. KDE is an alternative to Gnome which does pretty much the same things. I understand if this is confusing at first. KDE is documented here:
http://www.kde.org/documentation/

Oh, and RedHat, Knoppix, SuSE, Debian, Slackware (and many more) are Linux distributions. This means that the companies or user groups have selected different parts of Linux software and packeted it on CDs together with some kind of install program.

Hope this will get you started. Feel free to ask more.
Martin

^^^^ I think that's what you meant, so I'll answer a few of those questions. Firstly: we've given you links to tons of tutorials already. If you want them emailed to you, email them to yourself. We're going to post them here so everybody can learn from this thread. Secondly: it's not "What can I do?", it's "What do I want to do?" Linux is all about openness. It will let you do whatever you want. Install a distro, and start doing things that you'd usually do in Windows, in Linux. And eventually, you'll phase Windows out completely.

I just merged your two threads ... please stick with the
one you already have going if you find that more
questions emerge.

And before you ask more things that make others
burst out laughing - take things slowly, learn to crawl
and walk before wanting to run...

Read and understand
the Rute-tutorial

And don't expect our members to give you private
lessons via e-Mail, that's very rude.




Cheers,
Tink

I am not laughing because you are a newbie. That would be insulting, condenscending, and in this community, self-destructive.

I am laughing because of the unfortunate turn this thread has taken.

That lack of comprehension combined with a particularly hilarious accent evident in your writing makes the entire thread read like some skit on Saturday Night Live that Rob Schneider might be in. "You like-a da juice? Yeah, you like-a da juice."

I would never laugh at someone speaking a 2nd language. I am bilingual, and my 2nd language *stinks* and I sound like an idiot in it. I would never laugh at someone for not knowing about Linux or some other technical mumbo jumbo. I am not the smartest man on earth, or even in the top 50%. But the combination of all of this in one thread with an email @mentalhelp.net was just too much, and I found it quite hilarious.

No request here is urgent. Anyone who installs a new operating system on their machine that they do not understand when they have a pending deadline to meet needs to read Stephen R. Covey's 7 Habits book (again if they already have). You should understand going in with a Linux installation that everything might not be working for *months* as you learn how to configure everything.

A power user installs Linux in a day. A newbie installs for a daily hobby until they figure everything out.
