Free Linux E-Books?


Other than the E-Books on O'Reilly's site, is anyone aware of any good sites from which to download free e-books that are linux or linux programming related? I'm just trying to build myself a library of things to read on my way to/from work/class. (Don't worry, I take mass transit, I'm not reading my laptop on the freeway )

Thanks for the links guys. Some of those I have, some of them I'm going to get now. I really need to get myself a PDA capable of displaying these.

Without trying to loo a gift horse in the mouth, under what terms are you publicising these? Surely they are all under copyright still?

Please contact me (or another mod) offline to verify the legality of posting these books up - we don't want LQ to be involved in legal messiness.

Thanks

Thanks to 900i for responding so quickly. These are all free e-books available on line and made available from 900i's site. There is no need to report this thread anymore.

Some are "download a chapter" PDF while some are the complete book in PDF format.

Enjoy!
