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.

please use proper title for your message,and secondly this is your classwork,search for it and do it yourself :-) All i can tell you is look for redirectors in unix/linux.The answer to your question was in your Question .Mention what all options you tried
First of all you'll have to change the title of your thread since this isn't drawing attention to it, on the contrary. Second, post what you've tried and what errors you got. And last but not least, read the man page for mkdir
and do some Googling on output redirection in Linux (turns up this)
mkdir old | 2>errors
mkdir old | cat 2>errors
I'm not even sure if I'm supposed to be piping it. Assuming that's right since it says run the command mkdir old and then redirect error messages into a file named errors.
And yeah, I know it's my classwork. I said that in my first post.
I'm not too sure how to change the name of the thread. I'll be more descriptive next time. Thanks.
Have a look at the link I posted about redirection. Compare the example(s) in that document to your structure. I'm sure you'll see the error. Since it is your homework, I'm not going to do it for you but this should get you in the right direction.
Tip: Read about the difference between piping and redirecting output.
Well I've used the operating system before. This class is just introduction to Linux using the shell in Windows. So I should be fine as long as I do my work. The class average right now is 53% and I'm getting a 70 . I wouldn't be surprised if that is the highest mark in the class too.
