    Where to begin


    Iím a new user of Linux and I have to use it to install some simulation software (MM5,...). I use my university office PC that has Scientific Linux on it. I have some questions that hope you can help me.
    - Is there any hierarchical guide for beginners available on the internet?
    - How can I install the software on Linux?
    - How can I have a remote writeable access to my data on windows from Linux and vice versa? Or dual boot them.
    - Is it possible to mount an external hard-disk and USB on Linux?

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Scientific Linux is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), so take a look at the RHEL docs site for the answers you seek. On Scientific Linux you use the application named YUM to manage software. For sharing and accessing files on Windows machines, take a look at SAMBA. As for USB devices, most are plug and play like in Windows.
