And I have no idea what to do. I want learn how to set up file sharing, networking, and good easy stuff

Ow, kinda figured out the root is the log, or am I incorrect

I guess from the codename (shrike). It's not MDK, for sure.

Hi Saver

As everyone has said, the Linux Documentation project is definately worth checking out.

On a different front - a good general site for looking into the various Linux distributions is:


www.distrowatch.com


It's makes a nice contrast to the other stuff.

Tutorials are fine, but don't underestimate the power of the system help for some things.

A couple of simple hints: (don't include the <>)

man <whatever program>

info <whatever program>

apropos <any word>

apropos is my favorite. It can often give you clues to look under topics you haven't thought of yet.

Of course, you might want to use 'less' to read the pages easier.

Example:

apropos shell | less
