Hey,

Welcome to Linux Questions

So you have no experience with Linux what so ever ? (We were all there once before) You'll need to read the Centos Wiki over at there site. I always recommend the Slackbook (( http://www.slackbook.org/html/index.html )) for newbies as a reference.

This book really helped me when i was first beginning with Linux http://tldp.org/LDP/Linux-Filesystem-Hierarchy/html/

Hope it all goes well and good luck

CentOS is basically RedHat, hence you can find useful documentation at the Red Hat website: http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Re...nux/index.html. Another useful link to learn the command line magics is the William E. Shotts' book: http://linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php.

Feel free to post here at LQ for any specific problem.

Good luck and welcome to LinuxQuestions!

Make sure you look into RPMFusion, Fedora EPEL , and RPMForge if your planning on using this on a desktop system. If your using it for a server application then don't worry about these.


RPMForge http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/

RPMFusion http://rpmfusion.org/

Fedora EPEL http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL

You'll be able to use the equiv RHEL manuals here http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion_index.html. To check your version, type
Code:
cat /etc/*release*
at the cmd line.

See also http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz a good tutorial on Linux, based on RH style systems.

If you are new to Unix/Linux, this is worth a quick read http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm
