The MCS Linux Lab - Harder Hall 207

 

Note:  To change password or perform other tasks within Linux, or to learn more about the system, follow the link to the Linux Lab HomePage at the right.  The page includes a "cloud" of topics.  Use your mouse to rotate the cloud to the desired topic (like "password") and click on it.


The lab was constructed during the summer of 2005 and includes 20 Linux workstations along with an instructor's machine connected to an overhead projector. All workstations are connected to the Linux servers and to the campus network. Students can access their personal folders on Datastor.

The lab machines require a valid username and password to log on. These are not the same as the campus or e-mail names and passwords - since the Linux servers form a separate network (although attached to the campus net) and require a different set of usernames and passwords. This information is distributed by instructors or by the Linux Lab administrator, Lisa Schermerhorn (lscherme@skidmore.edu) in HH208.

To acquire an account, students must sign the user agreement (see the sidebar at the right). Download it, sign it, and return to your instructor or to Lisa.
