    command-line tutorials

    Hi everyone,

    This isn't a specifically ubuntu question so much as a general linux question, but I was wondering if anyone knows some good resources (books, websites, etc.) for learning the ropes of command-line interfacing. I'm intent on getting past the point-and-click phase and doing some more direct interactions with my machine, and a little expert guidance would be really helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Chris

    I personally like http://www.linux.org/lessons but the site appears to be down right now.
    I'll take you out for a meal with Mr and Mrs. Pain. Order up some violent quiche.

    There is also a little command line distro that you can install to a usb stick or cd that is basically a tutorial, even though you can do other stuff with it.

    Can`t remember it`s name.......

    Thanks very much, this is all really helpful. I printed out those cheat sheets, they'll come in very handy.

    Definitely linuxcommand.org - I used that guide and haven't found a better one since.
