Post info:: thread legend - linux info collection

Have some linux tips or a mini-tutorial that you would like to share with everyone here? If it is a post that you are providing information on and don't require a helpful solution or answer, toss 'info::' at the beginning of the subject line of the post and then provide a link to the thread here in this forum with a quick description of the info.

If you need a hand with the link, just let one of the moderators know and we'll get the post updated for you.

Let's show those windows folks just how helpful us Penguins are! LOL

Documentation is a must in Linux. Whether you are writing applications or using them, you cannot get very far without good documentation.

info:: md5sum - checking your downloaded ISO

You just downloaded a Linux Live-CD ISO or even 3 CD's worth of Fedora ISOs. Are you sure that they downloaded properly? In order to get a good CD out of your downloaded ISOs be sure to run an MD5SUM. Read more here...

I'm surprised nobody's brought up the linux documentation project. It'll show you just about everything.

A little article I wrote awhile back to explain the fundamental difference between Linux and Windows for anyone who is just starting out or knows someone like that.

Hope its helpfully.
