Linux useful commands


Hi

I am new to Linux and I am using a Debian distribution. I would like a walk through the command line if possible. I do not know a lot of commands. So far I know the ifconfig command, I also know that I can use 'man {command}'. I would like to learn of more networking commands.

Thank you in advance.

When you say "a Debian distribution", do you mean Debian or a derivative?

Debian has the Debian Reference http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ which may also be installed for offline reading.
That is a good place to start. It includes many basic instructions as well as Debian specific and system maintenance instructions.

Do you know of anything like this for other distros? Slackware, Redhat/Fedora, Gentoo, etc? Those were just the few that came to mind...

The default command shell in Linux is bash (although others such as tcsh are well supported). Most commands are therefore common accross all distros. Here is a cheat sheet that's rather more distro agnostic than the one posted above.
