  • The mail information page.

  • You may want to think about which shell you will use on the cluster.

  • There is a discussion of disk issues, including home directories, disk space, and backups.

  • The disks on the Linux cluster are linked via automount. This means you don't need an account on a machine in order to access its files.

  • Some systems on the cluster can submit batch jobs.

  • Here's the list of machines on the Linux cluster.

  • If you're confused by any of the terminology, this glossary can get you started.
