android system information

i've just installed an applet called 'android system' on my captivate. it is very cool but i'm new to the android world and i need to learn the information so i can determine what is important to me and what isn't. is there anything out there similar to unix/linux system administration for the android smartphone world? all i come across are application developer manuals. :thinking:

Typically Android is not meant to be worked with at that level. If you really need to, you can root your phone and even then install a console app for terminal access but that's only for the rare occasional use. In fact, while I have the terminal app I've never had cause to use it. All your Android use is going to be via high-level GUI user apps.
