Example, to change the hostname, you could do that with lisa. But the
truth is, you could easily edit /etc/HOSTNAME and it would give you the
same effect. Please note that this apply not only to linux but other
variants of unix as well. So knowing this is a very big advantage for you. 

Although it would be a bit hard to learn linux system administration at
