for Unix, try this:


Unix is like a twilight zone version of Linux, somethings work the way
you think it would, some things don't. (Unix users think the same thing
only in reverse).  Device names are very different, you will not have
eth0, you will have (network card abreviation for the chipset)0.  It
will be vary confusing if you don't know your chipset and have more then
one NIC.  File system and HD formatting are vary different.  File layout
is very different.  Commands are very similar.
