Question Newbies questions, figure

Hello all, this is my first post here.

I just installed rh8.0/kde for the first time ever so im a true newbie! Coming from a windows XP background, i have absolutely no knowledge of commands and such, my first question is is there a site i could go to that list all the usefull commands, and well documented (documented so that i can understand it.. prefereably

i've been reading how-tos, tutorial and stuff all over and all it did was make me even more confused.. what i'm trying to do right now is kill a smbclient process that dont want to be killed.. what is the kill flag im suposed to use?

another one, i have a linux fileserver (a slackware one that my brother configured) and i'm trying to mount its drive on my box (i want music!! aggh!) however, i have a hard time figuring out the smbmount commands, its confusing.. please help me (a nice newbie how-to would be nice, but i dont need to understand how to share file, i just need to know how to mount shared ones)

alright.. please don't mind my bad english..

I don't want to be killed either and luckily killing me is harder than doing
kill -9 the_processID_of_smbclientprocess

For mounting you need to know, how the server shares the drive (via samba, nfs, is there something else?)
For samba do
mount -t smbfs -o username=yourusername //servername/sharename mountpoint
The mountpoint can be any directory. Maybe you need to run this command as root.

Rep: Reputation: 45 has some tutorials for people migrating from Windows to Linux, and it will give you a nice intuitive and well documented explanation. It's like an online class of what Linux is, and many commands you can use. Check it out,
