Linux Tutorial


I have been to Linux for a couple of weeks... and I am trying to gain further knowledge, especially when it comes to using the shell and understanding a bit better how everything works

Googling, I found this page: http://www.linux-tutorial.info/cgi-b...l?224&0&53&0&3 (That's the ToC of a Linux Tutorial). I was wondering if you think that tutorial will help me or should I try to find another one?

Thank you very much for your attention

Most people on this forum swear by Linux: Rute Users Tutorial and Exposition (aka RUTE) have a look at it, it's pretty comprehensive.

Just a note. You can expect a tutorial section here at LQ "Real Soon Now". If you have any ideas for a tutorial or would like to contribute one please let me know.

Hi,

I suggest that for any documentation on RH distros you can get the best documentation on the RedHat site www.redhat.com

Check the documentation section for the PDF files. Check out the index in the HTML pages to see whether what you require is in that particular document.

Chekc it out.....

I think that is a decent tutorial. There are many other useful tutorials around. A few others have already cited a few excellent suggestions.

Two places I usually stop when looking for information about Linux software are The Linux Documentation Project (TLDP), found at http://www.tldp.org/ and the Yo Linux Portal, found at http://www.yolinux.com/#SOFTWARE. Each of these sites includes tutorials, HOWTO files, and a general wealth of information. I recommend adding both to your list of bookmarks and refer to them often.

Online tutorials are good and books can be even better. IMHO
I hate it when my tutorials go offline

O'Reilly book rock! http://www.oreillynet.com/
