V. INTRODUCTION:


Linux is in my opinion set for a good run against Microsoft Windows. I think they will lose because Windows is too big and powerful while Linux doesn’t even have a solid base of business.



VI. CONTENT :


Begin Linux Installation

We will practice upon the various ways of installing the Linux Operating System this week. We will attempt to dual boot on as many machines as we can get to operate that way but the number is unknown at this time.

We will get familiar with many distributions of Linux, their similarities, their differences, strengths, and weaknesses.

We will use Gentoo, Redhat, Debian, Apache, Suse, Manatix, and any other distribution that we can install. Just to name a few.

In the process of installation, we will examine the file system architecture, file system manipulation, and learn how to create and edit files using VI.



VII. SUMMARY:


Getting familiar with Linux is a very good idea. It is as close to a Unix machine that we can get in this classroom environment.



VIII. ASSIGNMENTS :


Chapter 3,4 in Linux text.
