good linux book for noobs


hi everyone, im new to linux. i just wanted to say that im reading a really good e-book at the moment called 'linux+ 2005 in depth' by thomson. i must say this book is very interesting indeed and very well written, it gives a good, clear overview of the basics of linux, such as history of linux, partitioning, system initialization, managing linux processes etc etc. i like it so much im going to buy the actual book to reference from when i finally get started installing linux

Wow--Not my first choice as a newbie book!! It is my current favorite, but only after several others.

Not sure what would make sense in addition---maybe one of the System Admin tomes.

Check out the O'Reilly web site---In general, I like their books the best.

PS:
Nice demo of how "newbie" can have wildly different meanings. Here is a newbie that knows how to get started in the learning process.
At the other extreme--sadly-- are the ones who--upon reading our advice--mutter to themselves: "What's a book?" And then of course, there are the functional illiterates who can barely construct an english sentence.
