best linux command line book or website.


what do you think is the best linux command line book that shows you the power of the commands and then takes you through how to use them....and is useful to all from beginner to decent administrator...

or is there somewhere better that i can use online.

the current problem im having is i got the basic commands .
but i dont really know what other commands are available ..and if i just got a list of them...then i still dont know which are the juicy ones, that prove to be really useful throughout your usage of linux.

so its not a list im looking for ...its more a useful commands type book that covers useful commands for beginner through to serious administration....

i currently have unix and linux systems administration handbook...which is fantastic..its great for networking knowledge and administration knowledge but doesnt really cover the command line of linux as much as i would like.

i want it to be like having a strong linux user with me that says ...well i would do it this way mate...or you can use this for xyz not just abc..

hope i make myself clear.

I always recommend these two, the first being an introduction for beginners, the second being a classic:

All,
regarding:
>http://linux.2038bug.com/rute-home.html

the link gives an option of pdf download that takes you a site purporting to be for Microsoft

>http://linux.2038bug.com/rute-home.html

this looks great but is not something anyone could go away and read

Fred.

i also ordered the linux command line and shell scripting bible ...and now im trying to install archlinux to get more familiar with the system...but the arch is stumping me at every hurdle..even the disk preparation prior to install..
