I like lynx for text based browsing. I think mc is great for ftp to hard
disk transfers. A program called setup is also handy without a GUI. This
is sort of an interface to starting services, setting up the firewall, etc.
For keeping your system patched and updated, yum, apt-get and up2date
are good rpm management programs that work with rpm.
As stated in earlier postings running the below command should reveal
which command line system-config tools are installed.
rpm -qa |grep system-config
This queries all installed rpms, then pipes the output to grep, which
only outputs the desired rpm packages, filtering the other rpms out from
displaying on the terminal.
This should show printer, mouse, etc configuration tools.
