If you are new to Linux and Unix, these exercises will get you up and running with most of the tools you need to successfully complete the lab assignments of this course. Some further tools will be introduced as we need them in later labs. Read through the entire lab before you start working, so that you know what to expect. Note If you do not have your UB Card or a UBIT account yet, visit the UB Card office in the UB Commons, room 211 on the North Campus, or 104 Harriman Hall on the South Campus. To find out your UBIT username, you can either visit and enter your name in the “FIND PEOPLE” search box, or t ake your UB Card to a UB Card Swipe Station to find your UBIT name and initial password; these are located in the Capen Library (first floor Cybrary), the Lockwood Library (2nd floor Cybrary), the Music Library, and UB Micro (in UB Commons). Your initial password should be the first four digits of your birthday (MMDD) followed by the last six digits of your UB card number (not your person number). Lab Tasks You must now carry out each of the following tasks during the recitation. If you run into problems, put up your hand and ask your TA for help.

This account is separate from your UBUnix account. If you have not had a CSE account previously, your login name is the same as your UBIT name. Your password is the same as your UBIT password was at the time when your CSE account was created. If you have previously had a CSE account (e.g. if you took any other CSE course last year where you received an account), your login name and password should not have changed.
