IBM heeft een stappen plan gemaakt voor degene die van Windows naar Linux over wilt stappen of voor degene die wat meer van Linux wil weten.
Step 1. Thinking in Linux The first step to success in Linux is learning to think in Linux. Take what you already know and redirect it to doing things the Linux way.
Step 2. Console crash course Linux provides great power and flexibility through the console. If it has been a while since you’ve spent much time at the command prompt, take a little time to reacquaint yourself with this environment by reviewing common commands you’ll use all the time.
Step 3. Introduction to Webmin While it is important to know the nuts and bolts of administration, it is often more convenient to have a tool. Also, a higher-level application makes complex configurations easier to handle. Webmin provides point-and-click configuration for beginning and experienced administrators.
Step 4. User administration If a system has no users, is it really a system? Learn about the Linux approach to users.
Step 5. Linux logging Linux makes extensive use of logging. Nothing is hidden from you. Becoming comfortable and familiar with logs will allow you to monitor the health of your system and track activities.
Step 6. Working with file systems File systems are at the heart of every server. Linux provides a lot of flexibility in its file systems.
Step 7. Networking Working unconnected is unthinkable in today’s world. Linux on the network unleashes its full potential. However, Linux networking looks very different on its face. You’ll need to learn some new terminologies and new tools.
Step 8. Backup and recovery The first line of defense against disaster is a backup of the data. Linux provides different options, some of which are very simple to work with.
Step 9. Installing software Linux can use prepackaged binary files, or you can compile programs directly from source code. The tools for installing Linux programs are very useful and provide functionality you might not expect.
