Talking First Day on Linux -

Howdy all.

Is there anywhere you dudes/dudettes can direct me to a site or someplace that has a beginner's guide? I want to start out by learning the command line and how it all works.

Yeah there are heaps of tutorials. Try O'Reilly's list of commands. Can't remember the url but it's on this site and I'm sure a google search will bring it up.

You are right by wanting to start by learning the use of "commands".

Here is "another" Linux forum that has a good library.
