Well as you figured out of the title of this thread, I'm green, deep green... I have 15 years experience w/ windows and DOS, but it differs, quite a lot! I'm going mad trying to understand all the new cmnds. And I have no good reference to 'turn to'. I was on my way to the book store, but, what's new today is old and change tomorrow, so the net is the best mean for finding out how I use pure text mode in Ubuntu.
I've installed server v. 9.10, and manage to build a simple Xwindow, by coping the code, straight off.
Try and error is one why to learn, but it's no fun :)

Of cuz, I need to fail, otherwise I want learn, but if some one can point me to a good site or a doc, which contains bash cmnds, I'd be very very greatful, and I need to get into the logic of Unix, 15 years with microsoft f**cks up ones brain...:D

Ant kind of help is wanted and needed!!!

Thx!

www.ubuntupocketguide.com/ is a great one to start with.
that has some terminal commands, but not too much.



This site is a bit intimidating, but it covers EVERYTHING you need to know, EVER.

Im sure others will have their own little sites, but those two are my faves. Good luck! Enjoy!
