IN the future, please do not hijack another conversation in the threads. To do so is bad manners. I have created this new thread for you.
If you are brand new to Linux, your best bet is a good book. SUSE, RedHat, Mandrake, etc are going to share the basic command concepts; each flavor is going to have a slight variation.
Go down to the Barnes and Noble and look for a good book on SUSE. You might find one that is Yellow and Black and part of the "unleashed bible" series. I found them for RedHat, and will be looking at one for SUSE too.
