Are you faced with learning UNIX? Have you 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 fourth edition expands coverage of Linux, the wildly popular free version of UNIX, and CDE (Common Desktop Environment), the Windows-like graphics interface. 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.
