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.

Not necessarily a no go, when I started working here in Spain a year ago, they only had 2 RHEL servers and about 60 Windoze. They were afraid of migrating anything, since they didn't have the knowledge. Now, one year later, we have 20 Linux (mostly Debian) and 40 Window§ servers, and still migrating things. Just to indicate that 'not knowing' or 'not using' at present doesn't mean your boss will give you a NO on the request.
You could ask him to allow you to set up a test environment in order to install and use Unison, and then compare it with rsync and communicate your findings with him.
that will only give me folders who's names start with a or A. The only folders under my directory are those at the root level, so that might work. But how would i have rsync take those results and move them to say /mnt/usbdrive/FolderA-Z
I can't even figure out how to do a find that will get me all the folders A-Z. I think if I wanted to have it rsync just all the A or a folders, I could do something like the following but I'm really not sure
