Linux Books


I have only been using linux for about 2 months now and I would like to try and find some good refrence material. I would like to get some recommendations on any good books to help out someone that knows nothing about command line. Any ideas would be good to have.

Thanks

The Advanced Bash Scripting guide on the www.tldp.org web site is very good. Don't let the "Advanced" scare you. The material consists of well commented examples that you can try yourself, which is the best way to learn.
