Linux/Linux to DOS Command Reference
I stumbled upon some really nice Linux Command Refrences. Enjoy!
If you need a better Reference, PM me and I can send you a really good ebook.
I'm very sure that there are some people here who have a real hard time adjusting to Linux, but if you use MS-DOS, here is a nice comparisson between MS-DOS commands and their Unix equivalents. (Please note that this is from a book called 'Unix for the Impatient').
MS-DOS | Unix
attrib |chmod, ls -l
cd, chdir |cd, cddir, pwd
command |sh, csh
copy |cp, cat
del, erase |rm
fc |cmp, diff
more |more, less, pg
path |set PATH
prompt |set PS1, set prompt
rd, rmdir |rmdir, rm -r
set |set, setenv
xcopy |cp, cpio -p
**Please remember that the above "Ms-DOS commands and their Unix Equivalents" is a exerpt from "UNIX for the Impatient" which is an excellent book if you want to learn UNIX quick.

MSdos and the linux command have a lot of similarities, perhaps if someone has grown up using nothing but the Linux shell then it would be weird for that person to adjust to MSdos.
