    Linux Newbie Manual

    While googling for Linux comparings to the old but trusted DOS - commands I hit the next url.
    It's a really good guide for Linux-newbies to understand this OS.
    As I had some problems to understand the structure of Linux, ' cause I always compared it with DOS, I think this one could give a good insight.

    Unless there are some pretty good tut's made by some members here, I'd like to put this one
    parallel to those tuts.

    Hope you enjoy it !

    Hey Shrek,

    I see that you are looking for some Linux basics. Here is a link to a post I made in a thread that is over in the tutorials forum.

    http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=239117

    It has a few commands that you may find useful while you learn the OS.

    Thnx Horse13,

    Yeah, saw it , printed it and tried it. I'm getting it piece by piece. I always liked DOS, so I'm also enjoying the prompt from *nix.

    There's also a nice tut from Negative : http://www.antionline.com/showthread...readid=239178.

    See you around,

    Looks good.

    Here are two more that you will use often

    ifdown eth0
    This brings down the NIC

    ifup eth0
    This brings it back up

    I use this daily here when getting DHCP addresses.

    Regards!
