new to

Greetings to all,

I am a new convert from Dos 3.x, 4.x, 5.x, 6.22, win 3.0, 3.11, 95, 98, NT, 2K, XP, etc.......(sorry) to rh 8.0.

Since I probably know less than nothing about linux, this forum seems to be a friendly learning environment.
(I did, however, configure eth0 to work with my rr cable modem) {zzzzz}.

Any suggestions of websites for one just learning linux will be most appreciated.

One of the links in my sig are sometimes good for newbies. I usually suggest checking out the tutorial over at This will help you learn the filesystem structure in linux, along with basic commands. The other common suggestion I give is to just read through the threads. Find something to focus on (let's say Desktop Environments) and do a search here on it. Here's the link to the search function (and it's located at the top of each page as well):

The google page for linux is: so if you can't find something here and wanna search elsewhere, that's where I go.
