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.

[CLOSED] Vim editor, right hand bottom number count
For some reason, I have lost the number count that usually appears in the bottom right hand corner of my Vi text editor. Any ideas as to how I can get this back as I need to edit a very large .cf file and am completely lost without this navigational aid. J

Have also done this and nothing happens. Have used Vim for yrs and have just reinstalled my server cos of disk space issues and now I have this issue. How do I check the version number, I am running RH v7.2?
Hey mate, have created this .vimrc file in the home directory of root where I mainly work and have started Vi but nothing appears. The weird thing is also that certain .cf files that I used to edit would show up in different colours such as dark blue and tan brown to differentiate between commands and just text. Now the text is all white.
