If they told you to login, and nothing else, then it looks like you have done that.

First, I think that you need some better instructions from them - what is it you are supposed to do?

Next, I do not mean to be discouraging, in fact I would like to encourage you - but you seem to have a complete lack of Linux knowledge and I think that you have put yourself in a very tough learning situation. Asking questions here is like asking others to do your job for you, with the same lack of instructions that you have been given, but second hand.

I would encourage you to search online for some basic tutorials in Linux and learn your way around a little, then go from there.

And the people here are willing to help, but cannot tell you anything useful without more information, probably a lot more information.

So maybe you could tell us about the system as a starting point. No need for a lot of technical details that you probably don't know anyway. So maybe just tell us what version of Linux it is running, how it was installed, how you want to use it, what you want to do with it.

[EDIT]You typed faster than I did...[/EDIT]

I don't have anything, i use on my pc Win7, no linux at the moment. So what shall i do?

Try this:

1. explain in more detail exactly what you think you should be doing/want to do/have been told to do
2, go back to 'them' and ask for more detailed instructions/requests & post them here
3. read/absorb http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz

When i asked about more info, they told me that it will be unfair with others and that some done this task, so i'm kinda stuck. About encouragment, i know that, but they have properly learning lessons, it's not the same like online, so i'm doing that to get there.

OK, lets see if they are playing a game. Maybe the instructions are on the server.

Login again, and type the following and tell us what it says:

Code:
pwd

ls -l

uname -a

do you have a website to upload?
That test page gives some hints

If you are the website administrator:

Login and try
Code:
less /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf
but perhaps you need to work through http://tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/ first

No separate lines, each will produce some response.

Is that a question, "theres task inside"?

Login to the bash prompt as in your first question.

Then type just the following and post back here what it shows.

Code:
ls -l

OK, you need to read that "readme" file.

It looks short so just do this and post back what it says:
Code:
cat UZDUOTIS.readme
