Question newbie config questions

Does anyone know where a newbie can find information on how to do neat little server configuration settings like create a command aliases file, mail aliases file, design your own text-graphics startup screen, how to change the command prompt, etc? I can't find anything on these neat little items anywhere in any postings, redhat manuals, books, etc.

Try this link:

It's the Linux Cookbook, a resource I found from the The Linux Documentation Project at ; it has a lot of helpful information and guides for newbies.
