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.

Hello, I'm setting up a computer to be a FTP server on my home network, I also use this computer for Folding at Home. What i usualy like to do is save my first virtual terminal for whatever im going to do, and i open virtual terminal two and three, log onto both, and i start a Folding at Home process on each (I have two processors). I like being able to switch over whenever and see their progress. I do this same thing every time, and i was trying to make a script that would automate the process. I was looking into the "openvt" command to open Folding at Home in the other consoles, but you have to log on to those consoles first! If you dont, you get the output, but its formatted incorectly and you cant exit it. (i was testing out openvt with the "top" command). If you log into the console before you use it, it works great. But if i have to log in, whats the point of having a script? If anyone has any idea on how to do this, idd greatly appriciate it. To make the script idd only have to put the commands in a file and make it executable right? Thanks alot,
(RegularUser must be set to one of user who is present on this system):
Add to rc.local
su - RegularUser -c "cd /folding; ./FAH4Console-Linux.exe >/dev/null &"
To get a FAH client to run on multi cpu machine, You must install as many FAH clients to separate directories as there are processors in Your machine and You may need to configure Your clients to use different Machine IDs (look to "Configuring the client").
Note: Never copy FAH files between separate clients as the usual outcome is more often bad than good.
Thanks alot, but i already know how to run Folding at Home on my machine. I am just looking for a way to make a script to view the output of the clients on virtual terminal two and three when i start up. So i can use rc.local for a script that:
1) Logs into each virtual terminal for me
2) Starts folding at home in each terminal, so i can easily see its output.
Looks like i may be able to do something with this screen comand... that gets around the loging in problem im having...
