Interview prep

I have been all but offered a Linux admin role and I want the position.  I have limited experience in Linux and they know I am not up to speed

They told me that the technical questions they be asking will be around Redhat/Ubuntu command line, networking, OSI, TCP/IP, and since the people at the company (not a recruiter) knows my experience already, I expect that they will keep it as easy as they can.

I'd like some assistance here in preparing some basic questions and answers to have at my disposal.

Assistance is greatly appreciated!

I have done a lot of Admin interviews
All the tiny details of simple admin tasks are asked.
Eg.  RAID, types, commands, all the tiny details.
LVM  -  same thing
Shell commands
Linux network commands of everyday use.  But they ask the other way -- what command would you issue to see which IP address are commented to your ssh server instead of asking how do you use netstat or any other command

You need to tell as many commands as possible with all the options  -- which option does what.

They would ask you step by step as to how you would do this.  Every trivial detail.

System performance tuning, files  --  where is config file for this, permissions, etc.
