Are you faced with learning UNIX? Have your typed "LS" to see a list of files, and gotten an error message instead? Relax -- "UNIX For Dummies" guides you through the tricks and traps of UNIX, while steering you away from all that technical stuff you don't want to know about. (Hint: try typing "ls" instead! Capitalization counts.)

The new third edition expands coverage of Linux, the wildly popular free version of UNIX. It also tells you more about using your UNIX system with the World Wide Web, e-mail, and other globe-spanning applications on the Internet and corporate Intranets.


  • Page 93: near the bottom, first checkmark under Wildcards for DOS users: change "actually have a dor" to "actually have a dot"
