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.

Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
OK, Redhat EL.
As unprivileged user, you have access to the "2500" commands in /usr/bin/.
And 100 in /bin/.
As root, when you do 'su -' ( su <space> <hyphen> ),
you can use the commands in /sbin/ and /usr/sbin/ . ( About 640 commands.)
With 'su' only : No access, i.e. /sbin/ and /usr/sbin/ are not in your PATH.
One way of looking at which are basic commands is that they are universally available. There are some commands that aren't universally available and a few that are different between different Linux distros (eg, networking commands).
Which commands are you actually missing (and not fstab, which isn't a command and isn't missing)?
