The Mandrake website has some how tos. Your best bet is to work out what you want to do first, that way your search can be more focused.

For very basic (but extremely thorough) info on the inux filesystem, I recommend RUTE (se my signature below).

You may also want to take a look at our Tutorial section, there may be some relevant entries for you there.

Also check out The Linux Documentation Project for many many docs.

Hi!

The best way to lear LINUX is to master its command. just like "su, useradd,chmod...& so on".
Train yourself using often the "Xterm".
