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.

I've installed tsl on a, rackspace p3 700mhz 512mb ram, server. When it prompted me to enter a user name and password, I did. But right after i installed it, it gave me some weird error saying that it couldnt create the user acct.. It finished installing, and i have root access. How do i create another account from the bash prompt or get access to a gui. Or do i have to install fluxbox or something like that?
O'k... I've created many user acct.'s in an attempt to login but it wont work. Whenever i try and login it just says "incorrect login". But it is registering somewhere that it has actually created the user acct.'s because i cant create 2 acct.'s with same name but i cant remove any of those acct.'s either. Any suggestions? Oh and is there some type of different login scheme? Like
(hostname) login: admin@bob
or something like that? or am i just delarious...
I did use the passwd reset function and it worked and i was able to login. But i only have the command prompt. What do i have to install to get a gui for tsl? is it another pacakge or tar ball? oh and when i do login in, it's not creating a directory for the user at /home/user/ and its giving me an error message.
swup is the software update utility that comes with trustix. I believe swup is selected to be installed by default. All of the packages are stored at several ftp sites. The contrib repository is a ftp site that holds packages not in the default ftp site. Not sure exactly how it works and how the contrib stuff makes it into the next release.
Go edit the /etc/swup/swup.conf file and uncomment the routine that looks at the contrib repository. Then to see the packages type in the command
This is probally another stupid newb question but how do i obtain an ip address from my router? Since i'm used to winshit i figured that it would automatically obtain one and detect the dns settings... The server also has two network cards on it but i dont think that it would matter. I've tried googleing it to but have had no results...
wait.... In a previous post you stated that i might have to enable swup by whatever. And acccording to some site that had a list of bash commands, and it said that ed was a text editor...(thats what i meant).
