Has anybody found,or know of, an online resource for *nix illiterate users? I need a list or instruction set of basic unix commands so I can get a better understanding of the terminal, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

There probably is, however i don't know of a good one offhand.

You can use the manuals inside unix itself.
try this
type "man man" in your terminal window.
you can also use the help system inside terminal for arguments to certain commands.

This might help you.

Also, for the specific shell tcsh you can type in
"man tcsh" to get commands and arguments for this shell.
