This is the first of a two-course series that takes a computer professional knowing nothing about Linux to be a fully capable Linux administrator. Students learn how to install and configure a computer running Linux, perform maintenance tasks with the command line, manage hardware and disks, maintain the file system, and edit text files.


Students are required to pass prerequisite courses with a grade of C or higher. Exceptions apply; please consult your department chair.
