Greetings! I am also Linux noob. Using CentOS 6.

So far the most useful guide I've found online is

"Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide" at http://tldp.org/guides.html .

Starts with the absolute basics, which is perfect for me

Thanks

Thanks Guys for your support. I am more inclined towards Sleuthkit and Autopsy so my feeling is by gaining basic Linux command, I will acquire good understanding of Sleuthkit commands. I also use Ubutu and VMware to help me manoeuvre. I will also appreciate some Sleuthkit and Autopsy tips if avilable in this group.

kamalakannann please use the tags to paste long output, it makes it easier to read and prevents others to have to traverse your length message to see the end of the thread.

Thanks
