Assignments2 - Write a user guide

Jump to: navigation, search


The goal of this assignment is to emphasise what you learned so far.

It is also an opportunity to practice to write readable technical documentation in english.

Don’t forget that a competent engineer must have technical and writing skills.


Suppose that I am your student and you are my teacher.

I would like that you explain to me in a document how to setup a Linux machine.

As a student I have only my laptop with Windows7.

I have also access to the Internet.

As a student I am totally clueless about Linux.

The keywords that must be used in your document are:

  • Internet
  • Linux
  • Ubuntu
  • Virtualisation
  • User access
  • root user
  • Network setup (IP address, netmask, default gateway…)
  • File system
  • Processes
  • SSH
  • Putty

The instructions must be very clear and simple.

You have to explain each step.

The document will be a user guide for a newbie...

The document must be written in ASCII.
