Does anyone have resources that I can read about how to use the linux shell? I think Bash is what its called. I borrowed knoppix from a friend (to lazy to dl it) and tried to run some commands in bash. LOL All I know is the dir command and thats from MS-DOS!!

You can find an entire manual here (http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/bashref.html)

Enjoy it :ok:

Read this excellent getting started with Linux (http://www.linux.org/lessons/beginner/index.html) document form Linux.org. From lesson three on, it deals with working with bash!
