Information on Linux

by Thmiuatga In reply to Linux-operating system

I may have the information you need but the caveat on this is there is so much I have to tell you and so little space allowed here so I will have to send a personal e-mail to you

New to Linux
The web has a ton out there--but a good small resource like Visual Quick Start UNIX is very good to have on hand. (I know the title is misleading) If yiou are new to Linux try to stick to SuSe or Red Hat (SuSe is much easier for starting)
Other than that keep trying and send us questions as you need help there are a lot more of us each day
