Cool Mandrivia


New to Linux, does anyone have a web site, or can send me the name of a book that would be good for using as an admin guide ?
I would like to know how to use DOS commands with in the linux setup.

Since you are in the mandriva forum, this would be a good place to start:

http://doc.mandriva.com/

and it's free.

Here's a list of bash commands:

http://ss64.com/bash/

http://www.unixguide.net/linux/linuxshortcuts.shtml

http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/linux/..._ugbasics.html

but that's probably not real helpful when just starting out.

A more comprehensive overview for beginners can be found in the excellent Linux Cookbook which is freely available on line:

http://dsl.org/cookbook/cookbook_toc.html

as well as available in a printed edition.

For pay, the Linux Administration Handbook is very good:
