New to Linux - Understanding Commands and Jobs

Hi all

I am a beginner user of Linux. After rebooting Linux after installation, I type in 'root' for localhost login and typed in the root password (that I had created) so the screen reads this:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.4 (Santiago)
Kernel 2.6.32-358.e16.i686 on an i686

localhost login:root
Password:
[[email protected]~"]#

Now I have read on the net that [[email protected]~"]# is prompting the user to 'start' a job, correct? And the user must type in 'start' before the specified job. Now my question is what 'Job' or list of available 'Jobs' am I able to start on Linux? What would be their command lines?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

When you are logged in as a normal, or unprivileged user, your shell command prompt will likely be a US dollar sign, or $ . If logged in as the root user your prompt will be a hash mark, or # . Use the su.

It shows that you are in a different place, that you have different rights.

No.

Now my question is what 'Job' or list of available 'Jobs' am I able to start on Linux? What would be their command lines?
Many and various. Almost too many to detail here.

If you want to learn the command line you might look at e.g. http://linuxcommand.org/
