Are you seeking help using the bash shell itself, or in knowing which programs you can execute from the command line? For bash-specific help, there are many beginners guides out there (google is your friend). To see which programs are available on your system, simply look in /usr/bin/, /bin/, /sbin/, /usr/sbin.

that may help a little. There are no real "bash suse" commands. Bash commands transfer to all systems that use bash.

For more in depth information, you can try 'info coreutils' on the command line. Use 'q' to exit, enter to select items marked with :: (double colons), arrow keys to move, 'u' to move up a level, 'p' to move to the previous chapter, and 'n' to move to the next chapter. That should give you enough movement ability to find what you need. For more information on other programs/commands, type 'info' all by itself, and you'll get a list of almost everything on your system.

Open an x terminal and hit tab twice.
Code:
Fri Jan 06 03:34 AM piper@uilleann ~ $
Display all 2667 possibilities? (y or n)y
:
!
./
[
[[
]]
{
}
411toppm
4rdf
4ss
4ssd
4ss_manager
4versa
4xml
4xpath
4xslt
4xupdate
a2p
a2ping
a2ps
aafire
aainfo
--More--
When you find the command you wish to investigate, try these commands:

man <command>
info <command>

A good man is easy to find and info isn't much harder...
