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.

Open a terminal and type in the commands. Keep in mind that Linux is case-sensitive, so you have to type in the commands with lower-case letters.
Since the output of those commands, especially the
command, is rather lengthy it is advisable to put that output into code-tags to make it more readable and preserve the format.
To do that you either go to the advanced editor (Go Advanced-button below the Quick Reply-box), copy in the output of the commands, mark it and press the #-button above the text-box to enclose it in code-tags. You can also do it manually with writing out the code-tags and copy the output between them.
For example, the lsmod you can see in this post inside the code-box looks like this in the editor: [code]lsmod[/code]
