Ooohh. A command line fan!

Here's some basic commands for you

cd - Go to previous directory
cd Go to $HOME directory (cd dir && command) Go to dir, execute command and return to current dir LS Linux version of dos's DIR Dir will ALSO work though.
FDisk Manipulate the partition tables
CP copies one(or more) file to another location
Eject Ejects cd/dvd media
Exit Leaves the command line goodness, and returns to GUI
Man Important reading for linux newbies
MkDir make new directory
MV move or rename files and folders
rm delete a file
Rmdir remove(aka delete) directory
Umount unmounts a device("safe removal" for thumb drives)

Creating Bootable USB Flash Drive.


The USB Flash Drive must be configured with an active primary MS-DOS partition. It must also contain the boot files. Follow the steps below to create a bootable USB Flash Drive.
Requirements:
  • Motherboard with BIOS that supports USB boot.
  • USB Flash Drive that may be erased.
  • Bootable floppy disk or CD with Fdisk and Format commands.
Directions:
  1. Plug in the USB Flash Drive.
  2. Make the USB drive the only bootable hard drive. Method 1:
    If available, change the BIOS settings for the hard drive sequence, making sure the USB device is at the top of the list above all other hard drives. Not all BIOS Setup Utilities have this option. Method 2:
    Disable all hard drives in the BIOS. In some BIOS Setup Utilities you can disable the individual hard drives, while in others you will need to disable the controller. Method 3:
    Unplug all hard drive cables inside the case. If the cables are unplugged the computer cannot detect and boot to the hard drive.
  3. Insert the bootable floppy disk or CD into the appropriate drive.
  4. Restart the computer to the bootable floppy disk or CD.
  5. At the command prompt, type: FDisk.
  6. Delete and create a new active primary DOS partition.
  7. Use FDisk to delete all partitions from the USB Flash Drive.
    • In FDisk, press the 3 key to Delete partition or Logical DOS Drive.
    • If there is just one partition on the drive, choose 1 to delete the primary DOS partition. If there are several partitions, the extended and logical partitions must be deleted before the primary partition.
    • After choosing option 1, the screen appears with partition information and a prompt for the partition to delete. Choose which primary DOS partition to delete, and then press ENTER.
    • A prompt appears to enter the volume label of the hard drive. Enter the label exactly as it appears on the top of the screen in the partition information. If the volume label contains gibberish or lowercase letters, the partition will have to be deleted as a non-DOS partition. Try using the option to delete a non-DOS partition in FDISK. After entering the volume label, press ENTER.
    • You are prompted if it should delete the partition. Press Y for Yes, and then press ENTER.
    • The screen changes to show only the total disk space and a line near the bottom that prompts that the primary DOS partition has been deleted. Press the ESC key to return to the main menu.
  8. Use FDisk to create a primary partition on the USB Flash Drive. The drive letter will be C:, since all other hard drives were disabled in step 2.
    • In FDisk, press 1 to Create DOS partition or Logical DOS drive.
    • Press 1 to Create a Primary DOS Partition.
    • The next screen prompts if the maximum hard disk size should be made into one partition. Press the Y key, and then press ENTER.
    • The next screen prompts that the computer will now reboot. Press ENTER to continue.
  9. Exit FDisk and restart the computer.
  10. Start the computer from the bootable floppy disk or CD with the USB Flash Drive still connected.
  11. At the command prompt, run Format by typing the following command: Format c: /s. Press ENTER.
  12. At the command prompt, run FDisk by typing following command: Fdisk /mbr. Press ENTER.
  13. Restart the computer without the bootable floppy disk or CD, and attempt to boot to the USB Flash Drive. If it works, it should go to a C:\> command prompt.
  14. Change the settings made in step 2 back so that the computer operates normally again.

How do I change my operating system from Linux to windows 7


Go into your root directory - probably C:\
View the contents of this directory. It more than likely is partitioned for the O/S. Whatever the drive designation is use the DOS command, C:\del. If it is partitioned, then delete only those files where the Linux O/S is located. This will delete everything in that partition on that drive. Then type in command, dir: This will list all the files in that directory. It should be none. If it still has files in it, delete those files. Then insert your Windows 7 disk and type in install.exe and enter. This should install your O/S from that disk.

Lost internet connection linux mint 14


Installing your wireless driver on a Linux distribution is only half the battle.
Once it's installed, you have to configure it.
This means adding the network name, or SSID (service set identifier), and the passkey for your wireless network.
In older versions of Linux, this had to be done with the "iwconfig" command line tools.
Luckily, Linux Mint has incorporated a graphical utility for configuring your Ethernet and wireless adapters.
Open the "Control Center," which will be found under the main program menu on the bottom right of your computer screen.
Click the "Network Connections" icon under the "Internet and Network" section.

Click the "Wireless" tab in the "Network Connections" window.


Click the "Add" button.


Type the name for your wireless network in the "SSID" text box.


Choose one of the options under the "Mode" drop-down list. Most users will choose the "Infrastructure" option.


Click the "Security" tab.


Choose your network's security protocol from the "Security" drop-down list.


Type the key for your wireless network in the "Key" text box.


Click "Apply" to save the changes.


Click the network connection icon in the task bar. It will look like two computers and can be found next to the clock.


Click on the name of your wireless connection to connect to the network.

Activate a Wi-Fi Card for Linux Mint
Log into Mint as user root. Launch a command shell, either by logging in in text mode or by launching a Terminal window from the graphical desktop.

Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig
Press "Enter." Make a note of the name chosen by Linux Mint for your Wi-Fi card it will be the only word displayed flush with the left edge of the screen.



Type the following command into the shell:
iwlist wlan0 scan
Replace "wlan0" with the name of the Wi-Fi card you noted earlier.
Press "Enter."
Mint will display a list of the wireless networks in range that you can potentially join.


Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig wlan0 essid library-wireless
Replace "library-wireless" with the name of the network you want to join, from the list generated by the "iwlist" command. Linux Mint will join the network.
At this point you can browse the Web and access the Internet in other ways via the Wi-Fi card on your computer.

Auto-Delete in just one click


You need to use the FileSystemObject of the Scripting Runtime library. See here. This library is not part of the standard VB references by default so remember you will have to find it in the "References" list and check it so that it is added to your project; it is under "References" as "Microsoft Scripting Runtime Library". However bear in mind that calls to delete files from a VB app are high-level requests to the O/S, not direct kernel commands. If you have any kind of file lock contention you won't be able to delete a given file.

The best way to blast an entire drive would be use the DOS 'format' command. You cannot run 'format' though on the system drive, and it will take longer to format a drive than to erase all files, though formatting will really do it. You would use the Shell command in VB to execute the DOS command.

See here and here.

You can also use the Shell command to execute the "del" DOS command recursively against the drive. The FileSystemObject is basically doing that under the covers, so it's not too far away. Finally, you can use API code to do it, though I am guessing you are not quite there yet in your experience. But if so, take a look at these articles:

Dos Problem


If you are only trying to move your data file, then create the new directory using the cd command e.g.  cd test.  Then move the file to the new directory either using the move command or the copy command eg. copy test.file c:\test\test.file
Alternatively you should try using the old text editor program in dos to load your file and then save to the directory of  your choice.   good luck
