    Hi All Noob here


    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to UNIX/ Linux.

    I am in a class for introductory UNIX/Linux and am struggling to figure things out.

    I am also considering seriously continuing with Linux in the future and truly learning how to use it and how it works.

    Welcome to Linux, and to Linuxforums.

    We can kind of help you with your homework, if you post what you're trying and how it's not working for you, specifically. What we won't do is do your homework for you.

    Approach Linux as though you know nothing, it's a completely different concept, but most people using Linux came fro a Windows background and have become very competent.
    There is a handy guide I have recommended to others over the years and there are others like the manual that comes with openSUSE, other free manuals for Ubuntu are on the web also.
    http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz is a handy reference, available also as a pdf download.

    Hello Coyboss, welcome to our forum and enjoy the ride. A fair analogy of Windows verses Linux might be a car, if its auto gearbox its a Windows car and you have no choice when you drive it. However if it has a clutch and manual gearbox its a Linux car and you can choose how you want to drive it. its the same with the software systems, kind regards Bob.
