Course Design
The Course is designed to take you step-by-step through the installation, setup and customization of the Vector Linux distribution. Vector 6.0 Standard is the edition used in this course with much emphasis on using Vector on older hardware. Much of the Free content on the Internet is disjointed and hard to follow but we offer short courses that are aimed at teaching beginners all the way through their Linux experience. We've also added quizzes to highlight important parts of the course.
