    Online Linux/Unix System For Use?

    Hi! I'm learning linux and I'm looking for a site that has a usable unix/linux system. This way I can have access to a *nix system when I'm at work/school/library/etc so that I can practice commands or what have you. I've googled but I haven't found anything, though I have found hackerslab.org which may be what I'm looking for but it's down at this time. Ages ago I remember seeing lots of sites like this, but now that I'm interested in this, I can't find any. Thanks!

    What you are looking for is called "Shell Account's". Search google for Shell account's and also search AO for lists of Shell Account websites. One that I know is sdf.lonestar.org

    They give you a shell account with different types of access levels, permissions, etc

    hackerslab.org is not going to be a good place for you to begin, as you cant really do anything there besides complete levels. hackerslab.org is a "hacking" game to where you simulate cracking a computer. but you probably wouldn't enjoy it being a n00b. Hell, im not a n00b and i dont really enjoy it..

    er0k: We both know you are a TOTAL newb haha, j/k with ya man

    On a more serious note, hackerslab isn't really that fun anymore to me either. I don't enjoy it as much as I used to and it isn't a good place for you to practice on (unless you feel like completing challenges to enhance the amount of **** you can do). If you don't even complete the first level, the amount of commands you actually CAN perform are EXTREMELY limited. So stick with a shell account or the link provided above by lumpyporridge.

    If all you wish to do is practice *nix commands, download the Knoppix boot cd and run it on your computer.

    http://www.knoppix.net/

    or you could run it off one of the computers at school if they are hip to it.

    Another option, if you only want to practice commands, is cygwin.

    you can go to:
    sdf.lonestar.org. At the prompt type "new" and you will be taken through the steps to make yourself an account.
