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.

Matching two fields between two files with awk
I have two files I am trying to find the items on File2 based on Field3 and Field4 matching the content of File1 Field1 and Field2. I may have other fields to check, but I figured if I understood how to do two, I could go from there. Iím not really sure how to set this up. I do not have Perl, and yes, I am looking at awk specifically, I realize grep may be an option too, though my question is about awk. Appreciate the help, bop-a-nator
