some tips

Make sure you log out! This is to protect your files and to make sure you are protected from other peoples actions.

When you log out, all the local files on the computer are deleted. Save your work to a transferable media, like SAMBA or a USB Memory Drive!

Samba is a great way to transfer,

save, and store files.

Use the help menu!

Some tips...
a word of warning

There are some very important distinctions to make when dealing with our UNIX servers and the Macs:

The Macs are not our UNIX servers!

When you log into a UNIX server, your Admiral files are on a separate machine – not on the Mac. Local files are on the Mac, not on the server.

Printing files on the UNIX servers and printing them on the Macs are done in different ways.

A Word of Warning
