What would you study up on?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

I posted something similar to this in the server forum but this is more specific to linux.

So I am flying down for an interview next week and I am getting low on study material and just trying to prepare myself the best I can. Position is as a Server Ops Engineering Intern.

I think I have the core down, but at this point I am just looking for any and all ideas on things to study. Trying to make the best use of the 3 day weekend.

So if you can think of anything that would be beneficial to study, please let me know. Whether it be commands, programs, protocols, etc.

Any and all help is GREATLY appreciated, thanks guys. thumb.gif

If you can work that command line like a pro, then you should be home free. Basically, any task you can do with the GUI (basic tasks), if you can replicate with the command-line great!

Good there I am pretty sure...used to the terminal and the basic commands. I am feeling pretty ready, but I know on the flight down I am going to be a nervous wreck, lol.

Can you mount, can you chmod, can chown? And when it counts who to finger when you get pownd.

That's a line my friend told me for remembering what he said were some pretty basic commands working on a server. IDK if it's really that useful but I thought it might be.

I would also read up on /etc/fstab in case you need to know how to automatically mount any drives / partitions. Don't forget to take a look at how your boot loader (GRUB / LILO / SYSLINUX) loads in it's config and make backups of those. It is always a good thing to setup your ~/.bashrc to use alias's to automate tasks.

That seems all good and well...

what I am trying to figure out now is how to install a bootloader to a usb drive and setup whatever bootable image desired, using the syslinux bootloader that can chainload to either menu.c32 or even grub
