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.

Sure sounds like homework to me. What have you done to find a solution to the problem? Other than to post here.
We will aid you when you help yourself to a solution. Provide us with what you have attempted and then maybe someone will be able to assist. To spoon feed member answers for homework helps no one, especially the requester.
Too many members just shoot answers without considering consequences for the OP. Sure, answered but did the poster learn anything other than copy & paste?
As a member I would like to see others think about shot-gunning solutions. Would you want someone that could perform, possibly stumble while in training to learn or someone that gets the answer then graduates and then fails? I would not hire the latter!
There's a time for spoon feeding and a time to address a posters attempt at the tasks. Throwing out answers helps no one, not even the member who already knows the answer. Try to model your answer to help the poster to understand not flat out doing the task(s).
Do not expect LQ members to do your homework - you will learn much more by doing it yourself.
This LQR is simple but justifiable, reasonable and should be the controlling factor when addressing homework so the poster can learn. We may need to assist yet not do it.
