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 would greatly appreciate if if I could get help answering these command questions. Thank you.
I need help with commands use: Questions asked
1. what day of the week were you born?
2. change current run-level to 3.
3. create a user account for Johnny Quest, assigning a password of pcage321 and login as jquest on another session.
4. find the present directory for jquest:
5. change directory to "/".
6. list a few names the directory structure (name of directories):
7. log in as jquest, go into the /etc/xinetd.d directory and then go back to your home directory. What command did you use to go in and out of that directory?
8. create a "test" and "test1" directories under the jquest directory.
9. Copy the file /etc/resolv.conf into the "test" directory and the /etc/hosts into the "test1" directory.
10. Rename the "test" directory to testing.
11. move the "test1" directory into the testing directory.
You forgot step 12:
12. DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK
We will HELP you if you're stuck, but posting your homework assignment, verbatim, is against LQ rules. Show us what work you've done, explain where you're stuck...and we will be happy to assist. Otherwise, check your textbook, ask your teacher, or do some basic research on your own.
I'd really like to welcome you to LQ,
but you introduced yourself w/ 2 breaches of our rules and a very
rude thread-hijack ... so the first thing you get is an infraction
for double posting, and a telling off for posting verbatim homework
assignments w/o any indication as to what you tried to achieve on
your own to get a solution (no, posting the question for others to
answer them is NOT considered an effort on your end), and hi-jacking
someone else's completely unrelated thread in the process.
P.S.: I cleaned the other thread up, merged your two posts into one
thread and closed your thread. Try again after reading our rules,
and trying to understand what our stance on homework means for you
posting here about it.
