 I've installed Red Hat 5.0 Linux and I've got a problem

Hello, I'm a Linux BEGINNER
When the installation has finished, Linux wants me to type a login and a
password. This works very well, but then the program asks me something :
[root@localhost /root] #
I do not know what to do then !
If I type something and then return, it says
bash : sth_i've_typed : command not found

Please help me !! (if possible by email <fur...@club-internet.fr>)
Thank you very much.

"[root@localhost /root] #  " is your "preinstalled" command prompt. Here you
can input (?) any UNIX/LINUX- command you want, ie. ls for a directory LiSt
and cd DIR for a Change Directory DIR (you have to replace DIR by any
directory or directory path you want to change to).
Which OS did you use before migrate to LINUX?
For a detailed command guide search the web, read this news group (i suggest
there is a link to a LINUX user guide above) or best bye a LINUX book for
beginners. LINUX is a complex OS which can't be explored by trial and error.
It's hard to start working but once you learned it you will never miss it.

Hope to helped you!

In article <891971723.28194@si2-paris>, "Thibaut"

Is this for real?

It's called a 'command line'

You type commands you want the shell to execute.

like 'ls' to view a directory.

and 'cd ..' to move up a directory

and 'cd directoryname' to go to a certain directory.

You *ARE* somewhat familiar with the command line structure of Unix, right?

Harry,
     Be gentle with begginers.  Don't forget that ALL of us were at this
same point in each of our own beginings.  Twenty years ago, few people new
what the heck a default directory was.

Thibaut,
     Suggested Reading:  I've heard good comments about the book series
"such-and-such-subject for Dummies."  I'm not calling you a dummy.  Being a
beginner, this might me a good place to start.  I've gotten great
information from two books, "Linux Unleased" and "Linux Secrets".  I
recommend learning how to use Xwindows, then connected to internet on the
Linux box.  There is a HUGE amount of information available and hundreds
(thousands?) of HOWTOs.

Good luck.

Patrick

You're right about beginners.. but in truth, I laughed my ass off when I
read this. It brought back similar stories like using the CDRom tray for a
coffee holder and Scotty talking to the mouse... c'mon... it's funny...
looking at a command prompt and wondering what it is... <chuckle... am I the
only one thinking this is hilarious?>

I would say that this debunks the notion that Linux is hard to install.  
I think MS can start worrying if a complete beginner who has never worked with a
command line before can successfully install Linux.

future dude!

I think it's probably only funny to users who have used unix for many
years,
and dimly remember back to the days, when they went, "huh? what's that".
Because I thought it quite funny as well :->, no offense to the orignal
poster :->.

Though I must recommend the <your topic> for dummmies, as they are
seriously
useful for beginners, though I've never liked the "for dummies" part,
makes
you feel like a dummy when bying these books :-<, ah well I guess the
ego is getting too big and needed some t{*filter*}, any how :->.
