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 newly revised and updated fifth edition expands coverage of KDE and Gnome, two graphics interfaces that make Unix look like Windows, only better. It also tells you more about using your UNIX system with the World Wide Web, e-mail, and other globe-spanning applications. New chapers cover the peculiarities of Linux, the most popular Unixish system, and get you started running a Web server on your own Unix system.


  • Flawless so far!
