Got Skills? Bridge `em to Linux - Part 8
by Kendra Dalin
Novell Connection Magazine

Here's an excerpt:

The first three articles in this series provide primarily background information, including a summary of the Linux history, a discussion of Linux fundamentals, and an introduction to Novell Open Enterprise Server. (If you haven't already, check these out: See "Got Skills?" Novell Connection Online, January 2006, "Back to Basics," Novell Connection, Q1 2006, Novell Connection Magazine, March 2006, Tech Talk #2.)

Parts 4 and 5 in this series move beyond this necessary foundation and take the first big steps toward achieving the series' goal. Bridging the gap between your NetWare know-how and Linux naivete, Part 4 walks through commonly-used NetWare tasks to highlight their functional equivalents on Open Enterprise Server for Linux. (See "Got Skills? Bridge 'Em to Linux Part 4".) Further illustrating that NetWare knowledge serves you well in a Novell Linux environment, Part 5 discusses two familiar server management tools for Open Enterprise Server for Linux: Novell Remote Manager for Linux and Novell iManager 2.5. (See "Got Skills? Bridge 'Em to Linux Part 5".)

Parts 6 and 7 work in tandem to increase your understanding of the Linux file system. Part 6 introduces Linux file system choices, structure and commands. (See "Got Skills? Bridge 'Em to Linux Part 6.") Part 7 hones in on aspects of the file system that might confuse or prove particularly interesting to you and anyone else with a history of NetWare administration. Discussion points in part 7 include Linux disk partitions, Novell Storage Services and file-system access control. (See "Got Skills? Bridge 'Em to Linux Part 7.")

This article discusses some of the tools and command-line utilities you will use to monitor the Linux operating system.
