Most of the bash command manuals only shows the syntax but not how to use them. I created a website which shows the commands with examples, which can be very usefull to newbies.

BTW This site also has a graphics section with the vector image of the Gentoo logo and various Gentoo/Linux wallpapers.

I'm using mozillafirebird and i think the fonts in the navigation are very small, also, the layout table must be a 640 or so width, i would either make it at least aimed at 800*600, or define the width in % so it scales for higher resolutions. I don't know what resolution you are using, but i am at a 1024/768 and it's already very small (smal, as a dutch guy u'll understand) aka not filling even half the width of the screen

otherwise i think newbie linux sites aren't bad, i try to help a bit with a belgian one myself: www.linux4you.be

I enlarged the font of the navigation menu a bit... I'm using 1280x1024 and looks fine...And the table width is written for a 1024x768 screen and looks just fine there...anyway thanks for your comment...

BTW I registered myself on your site...

it's not my site
it's actually a guy who helped me set up linux back in the days of still using Debian, and i wrote some things for it (though now he has redone his site and not all tutorials have been moved yet)

There is a lot of good information and examples in the bash guide at tldp.org, it is even in the portage tree app-doc/abs-guide. It is a very good reference.

Nice list, but I think you're missing one command:
Code:
cd -
Goes back to the previous directory.

cd - goes back to the previous working directory, while cd .. goes one level down. Try cd'ing to /usr, and then typing cd -, and cd'ing to /usr, and then typing cd ..
