Linux / Shell Commands

There are two types of commands in linux: linux commands and shell commands.

Linux commands are the same whatever type of shell you are using, but differ between linux distributions (Redhat, Mandrake, SUSE, Debian etc). We have compiled a list of linux commands specific to Redhat 9.0, and are in the process of writing easy to understand explanations for each command.

Shell commands vary from shell to shell (bash shell, borne shell, cshell, korn shell etc), but remain the same across linux distributions. As with the linux commands, we have compiled a list of bash shell commands, and are working our way through writing the basic explanations for those commands.

For those of you who are unsure how to use linux commands, see our Linux Commands Tutorial which explains some of the basics.
