Take a CCNA course... it's more worth it than any books. You need not take the exam if you just want hands on learning experience.

you can also take a look at the following link:

http://www.fokus.fhg.de/linux/LDP/rute/

i have that book in print, as well as Running Linux by O'Reilly, and a few magazines lying around. i find that by mixing and matching and looking around online, most stuff is covered.

Sheesh, computer books. They can be outdated when you just got the book.

I thought you wanted books about...

routers,networking,etc...
as you put it yourself (and not Linux). Hence my recommendation for CCNA courses. But hey, you can just buy the books on their own although without practice they're pretty much useless.

Yea,

i'm still looking for any good book about routering,networking and stuff.the Running Linux is my first book,i bought it to learn basic commands,KDE,etc.It is doing fine,but now i need book about routering,because i don't know how those works.
You won't believe but i without any experience made router working.It was streng.i just put MAC adress and it works .)

Totaly newbie.Know about software,reinstalling OS ,install soft and hardware.But don't know much about routering,networking,etc.So i need book.

I'll look at Fry's to get any good one.

I posted this to get info about what books you'd recomend to me.

Thanx,but still can't see any reply with "buy this one" or "that one".

I can't take any courses.i know books getting useless in few "months" ( or days?).However my first book is Running Linux 4th and must tell you this book helped me a lot.

Networking

I'm partial to the books from Red Hat Press
http://www.everythinglinux.com.au/ca...7779e3cb8f5c3c

Linux Network Administrators Guide
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag2/index.html
It can be downloaded from
http://www.tldp.org/guides.html

Linux Networking: A Beginner's Guide

Routers - not exactly a book, but good info
http://pigtail.net/LRP/

A book you can buy is

A good all around book is
Linux Adminsitration Handbook

Thanks, WannaLearnLinux

I went to Barnes and Noble today and here they have a great Linux section. Needless to say I was drooling.
You might do a search on Ebay. You can usually get basically new books there for 8 to 15 dollars. One I plan on getting there is Linux System Administraion from the Craig Hunt Library.
