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.

okay, I am running a windows 10 host
I created a mint rosa x64 guest.
(I had to enable intel virtualization in the mobo, but I got past that hump)
I am trying to install vmware tools, so I can resize the guest window.
It tells me to run commands in the terminal.
that's a little beyond me.
help, please, for someone unfamiliar with terminals.
I can open the terminal, and I can type tar and press enter, but obviously, that's not enough...
First unpack the vmware-tools....gz file (I guess the extract button would be a good start, but ensure you extract everything), then navigate to the location where you unpacked it and at that location doubleclick the vmware-install.pl file.

Navigate to the folder that contains the vmware-install.pl file. You should be able to right click on that folder and select something like "open terminal here". If so, do that, and in the terminal type ./vmware-install.pl (that's "dot slash vmware-install.pl").
If not, I am afraid I can't help you from this remote location.
