I will apologise in advance for being so ignorant"

will the command "uname -a" display the current version of OS?

What command would I use to list the current running process on a system - is it ps ie or something similar?

What command can I use to show the current file system usage?

Which commands do I use to change the ownership/groupID and permissions of a file?

Which command would you use to list the users on a mounted filesystem?

Thank you very much

"will the command "uname -a" display the current version of OS? "

Yes. "unamee -r" will give the release level.

"What command would I use to list the current running process on a system - is it ps ie or something similar? "

It is "ps -ef". "-i" is not a legal option.

"What command can I use to show the current file system usage? "

df -k


"Which commands do I use to change the ownership/groupID and permissions of a file?"

chown and chggrp.

"Which command would you use to list the users on a mounted filesystem? "

fuser will identify processes that are using particular files.

You can "man" to find out the usages of these commands.
