Smile Books on Linux


Not totally new to Linux. Have done distro installs before. At this point, I'm looking for a way out of the MS lock down I've been in. Looking for a good beginner/intermediate book. One that will cover things such as server installs as well as things like X-Windows/SAMBA installs from CLI. What I am looking to do is to install a file/server and mail system that is accessible from a Windows or OS X desktop.

I have not really decided as of yet. I am familiar with Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS. Have not used them enough to know the real differences though.

Thanks for the help.

You can also get the "Linux Professional Institute Certification Study Guide". Besides it being great when coming to shell stuffs, explaining the basics in rpm/yum/dpkg/apt-get (package installers), X settings, e-mail settings, etc. You can also get some certification from the LPIC guys.
