This document is written for people who have just installed Linux but don’t know what to do next. Most of the commands discussed here should work on all distribution of Linux but since I use Red Hat 5.0 some of them may be specific to Red Hat 5.0. I have also used Caldera OpenLinux 1.3 and have included some Caldera specific information. If any of you have any suggestions or ideas to improve this document, they are most welcome. All commands are in quotes and you need to type them without the quotes. For example if you see type “ls” then you just need to type ls. You will also have to press the ENTER key after typing each of the commands. There are some useful commands in the document but for complete command reference you will need to refer to additional documents.
