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.

thank u for ur promt reply,i am grateful that we have experienced people in this area.i am pretty experienced in the windows area,but fail badly in the DOS mode. when i type this command is it: id-uname-a-fdisk-l or /id/uname/
a/fdisk/-l Thanks mate!!
Just to clarify that: The Linux command line has nothing to do with DOS, except may be for the look. If you mix the information on the Linux commandline (and there are several, most common is the Bash shell, I for example use zsh) with information for DOS you will not get far.
Keep in mind that Linux is not Windows, so your Windows knowledge will not really help you here and may be can make things more difficult.
Having said that, for a beginner I would recommend to have a look at http://linuxcommand.org/index.php to get a basic understanding. Also keep in mind that you have to type in the commands exactly like they were given to you. If you find commands in different lines they most likely are different commands and need to be launched separately from another.
