You have successfully survived Part I. It was all pretty simple, huh? What follows is a somewhat terse list of pointers to additional sources of information.
This is your most immediate source of more information for UNIX commands. To access manual pages, use the command man program-name. Alternatively, if you are using an X Terminal, the xman or tkman programs. The man command itself has a manual page, and is worth browsing.
Some questions are so frequently asked on the Usenet News Service (see the section of the same name) that compendia of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and their answers have been edited together by kind hearted Usenet denizens.
The easiest way to access the Usenet FAQs is through the World Wide Web. To do this, use a Web browser to visit http://www.faqs.org and have a look around.
The Usenet newsgroups themselves also carry a wealth of information. As well as the FAQs, browsing a Usenet newsgroup is a great way to become enlightened. Given that there are thousands of different groups, the hardest problem is finding the most appropriate one. Again, see the Usenet News Service section for more information.
The most comprehensive -- and sometimes even the best -- source of information on any technical topic is undoubtedly the Web. Often a simple Google query6.1 will give you more and better information than any other method.
Make sure you check out the ProgSoc page, http://www.progsoc.uts.edu.au
Usenet discussion of the WWW occurs in the comp.infosystems hierarchy of newsgroups (in particular comp.infosystems.announce is worth reading).
