Need Help With Linux

hello, I am COMPLETELY new to Linux, however, I did manage to install it although partitioning was a b*tch, anywho, my brothe ris a "White Hat Hacker" or something, he tells admins of their vulnarabilities so I need help starting on this because I am British and I have a huge EGO and will not ask for his help

I have Red Hat Linux 7.2 installed but I have no idea what to do from then, also the little linux pengy doesnt appear on the top like it when I installed Slackware, but then again that was 8.0, I can live with out the I just need some advice or ANYTHING that will help get me started, please email me or IM me. Thanx

buy a book or two to get started with. or maybe some online information from and of course

you might want to learn from scratch which includes the derivation/ history of linux, about the author and his history.

start cracking now

Faster women Fast cars always rock though too

My AOL is: MasterCLQ, I don't mind helping people out anytime I'm on. If it's too difficult I point em here though, and ask em to post. Honestly though, I get most of my answers for em from a search I perform on this very site. But I don't mind. Plus it helps to know exactly what to do, sometimes it's easier if you know what you are looking for to find it.
