CLUELESS at the Prompt

Here are some tips for the novice in our newest column designed for the newcomer to Linux.
Disclaimer

You have probably noticed that this column is shorter than the previous two, presumably since Linux is really an easy OS to learn so my curve isn't as steep; or maybe it's the fact that I have gone half crazy trying to install a DECvt220 to a serial port and it refuses to cooperate.

Next Time—let me know what you would like to see in this column, and I'll try to oblige. Just e-mail (troll@net-link.net) me and ask; otherwise, I'll just write about what has given me trouble and how I got past it.

Mike List is a father of four teenagers, musician, printer (not laser jet), and recently reformed technophobe, who has been into computers since April,1996, and Linux since July. He can be reached via e-mail at troll@net-link.net.
