Hi. I am looking for a learning/reference book to help me and my linux endeavors out. This summer I purchased SuSE 8.2 Pro and have installed it and windows (both in dual boot and back and forth) many times since, never getting too far. I would still like to really get good at linux, but I fear I will need the help of a book (or two). I wouldnt call myself a windows God, but I can certainly do more than most people I know (maybe my best friend and a couple others can out do me). I am looking for a book that would explain Linux from next to nothing in plain english, yet isnt focused toward complete dummies. I would like to especially learn more about commands and such, as I believe it would be more beneficial than learning through a GUI.
Some books I was looking at were:
Running Linux (4th ed) by Matt Welsh
- someone commented how some of the material wasnt as relevant
toward new distros and such, but good in learning
Linux In a Nutshell (4th ed) by Ellen Siever
- looks pretty good from what i read
Red Hat Linux 9 Bible by Christopher Negus
- would this be good even though i have suse 8.2? relevant?
SuSE Linux Unleashed by Bill Ball
- It tells you about SuSE 6.2.... kind of old?
Well, if anyone has some ideas, feel free to shout, just keep in mind my linux brain isnt developed yet (i'm still facinated by the mount commands
Thanks to anyone who feels like helping me out
