Product description


This text offers UNIX users tools for solving problems. It contains: practical solutions for problems likely to be encountered in logging in, running programs, sharing files, managing space resources, and printing; background on what's going on "behind the scenes" so that you can make sense of the suggestions, rather than simply memorizing keystrokes; an explanation of how to present problems to your systems admin so that you're more likely to get quick, accurate support; a list of the site-specific information to which you should have access, and a place to write it down; and a quick-ref card summarizing what to try first, second, third for commonly encountered problems.

From the Publisher

This book is written for UNIX users, who are often cast adrift in a confusing environment. It provides the background and practical solutions you need to solve problems you're likely to encounter -- problems with logging in, printing, sharing files, running programs, managing space resources, etc. It also describes the kind of info to gather when you're asking for a diagnosis from a busy sys admin. And, it gives you a list of site-specific information that you should know, as well as a place to write it down.
