I'm very new to unix, and have some questions, the answers to which I just can't find in the man pages. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Which command do I use t diplay the current version of the OS?

How do I list all network interfaces on a server?

Where do I find the file which lists the file systems to be mounted at system boot time?

Whcich commands can I use to check the system/hardware load?

Which file do I edit to change the TCP/UDP ports the "inetd" process listens for?

Thank you very much

ChiefPFF,

Version of OS : uname -sr
Networkinterfaces : ifconfig -a or netstat -i
File with al filesystems mounted at boot: depends on the OS, probably /etc/vfstab on solaris >5 or /etc/fstab on SunOS <4 or Linux.

System load:
vmstat for memory, swap, CPU
iostat for the disk and scsi interfaces

inetd configfile: also depends on the OS version but probably /etc/inetd.conf
