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 am trying to setup the path whereever I go to command prompt. Below is the PATH,
Initially when I go to command prompt and type the following command
echo $PATH I get this ==> /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin
I need this Path to be set ==>/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:
Since I have installed KSH on my fedora which have default bash shell, I was not able to find the ksh profile file to add this as a path. So I wrote a small setev file to set this path, below is the setev file contents
Scanning though the ksh manpage, I see that the ~/.profile is sourced. Also for interactive shells, check the contents of the file indicated by $ENV. I doubt that it would undo .profile changes, however.
The point is that if you set up the cmds as detailed (inc export) above in the .profile file (for ksh), it will automatically set it up for you every time you login.
If you want to manually run it, just create a new shell file eg
chmod u+x path_set.sh
then to run
which will inc it in your current env.
It'll still need export cmd so subshells see it.
