Unix is the base operating system for most systems at MSI. This tutorial is designed to familiarize users with the Unix operating environment and to help them begin to feel comfortable navigating the base functions of the operating system.

The tutorial is broken up into two parts. 1) A lecture on the basic functions of the UNIX operating system 2) A 30- to 45-minute lab designed to give new and current users exercises to practice setting up accounts and trying basic commands

For users who cannot attend the tutorial or would like a refresher, there is a Unix Web cast in the archives located at: (third one down)
