Summary

Linux Made Easy for You

Addison-Wesley's Interactive Linux Tutorial and Reference is a CD-ROM tutorial and a lab/reference guide which together enable you to acquire basic user-level familiarity with Linux in a self-paced environment. The material covers mostly generic Linux concepts (though it is based on the bash shell) and assumes no previous knowledge of Linux.

The CD-ROM includes 14 modules (which average about an hour each) that demonstrate particular aspects of the Linux system using dynamic examples and hands-on exercises in a simulated Linux environment. Using the assessment software contained on the CD-ROM, you can determine how well you understand the topics covered in the modules; this tool randomly generates multiple-choice tests and prints a personalized report pointing out your strengths and weaknesses based on your performance, and it can be used as often as you like. The personalized report directly corresponds to the CBT making it easy for you to review only the modules that require additional study.

Upon completing a particular module, you can gain experience working with Linux terminal exercises in the module's corresponding lab manual chapter. The lab manual also includes linux command references and a glossary of key terms, both of which are provided as a useful reference to the Linux user.

This tutorial will teach you to:

    Understand the role of operating systems and the general differences between DOS, UNIX, and Windows
  • Recognize the role of the linux shell
  • Define key terms
  • Understand the overall Linux file structure
  • Log in and out of a linux system
  • Understand the importance of a home directory
  • Use cal, date, mail, news, who, and write commands
  • Copy, rename, delete, move, link, sort, find, join, and print files
  • Make, change, and delete directories
  • Use pipe, redirection, and filters
  • Use Linux on a daily basis
  • Construct simple shell scripts
  • Decipher Linux error messages
  • Control the security of files
  • Use vi text editor
