Entry level UNIX class

Does anybody have any links or docs, (Word, PDF, etc), that could be used for an entry level UNIX class. I want to see whats available and piece something together.
I can give my email to anyone if it needs to be emailed

Thanks

Hi,

If you are looking for bascic things and dont what to be very specific, go for linux and buy some linux books and practice.

Re: Entry level UNIX class

It's not for me to learn, I know some, my small company wants me to train others, and we need HPUX, not Linux.

Re: Entry level UNIX class

HP Education has a UNIX Basics course #51434.

And awhile back I had a customized version of this put together for us by HP Education that just hit the 'very very' specific basics for our programmers. The called it #51434 Custom.

Check with HP Education and see if they might provide the training documents for you for either of these (at a cost I'm sure). Don't know if they will, but it never hurts to ask.

Just a thought,

Re: Entry level UNIX class

HP supplies all the reference manuals online for free. As far as actual training, reference manuals are not very good at that and most training courses are proprietary and not available to download. You may find some simplified docs at college and university web sites -- Google can be quite helpful. I see something that might be a possibility:

Then you are left to your own devices. If you yourself are knowledgeable you could cobble together your own introduction from otherwise free web resources.

Re: Entry level UNIX class

If you give me your email address I can provide you with a presentation about Serviceguard (in exchange for some itrc points). I made it this summer for a small training I held here at my company.

Re: Entry level UNIX class

Hello Viktor,

I wasn't looking for Service Guard this time, but I might be able to use it in the future,
so I'll be glad to give you the points for that.
Please indicate if you can which version of SG it is based on if possible, thanks.

Re: Entry level UNIX class

Hi,

Go for Rafeeq Ur Rehman's CSA guide.

You will not get a book better than this for beginners

Re: Entry level UNIX class

If you're going for a fundamentals book, Rehman's is much too deep and much too Admin focused. Look for Marty Poniatowski's stuff, I can't remember whether he did a generic HP-UX or if he was all Admin focused as well.
