    well Terminal just lets you use the OS X base/subsystem, which is based on UNIX.

    you've kind of got to learn Linux/UNIX to understand the commands, although i'm sure there is a site out there that lists Terminal commands. i'm sure you could also find a pdf that lists alot about Terminal. - OS X faq UNIX tricks. you can subscribe to that mailinglist, and then you'll get mail everyday that has some UNIX tip or trick. at the very least, looking at stuff like that everyday will help to familiarise you with command line stuff.

    and check this out: the official Unix Terminal command list. some good basic stuff in there. i'll have to have a look at that myself. :D

    and remember, Google is always your friend. :) :D
