MasterC and Fancypiper both got some good links on their "sig's"
in fact various of the moderators have got some good sig links - give em a try - then it's only time and bandwidth.
I know that there are also some "distribution specific" sites/forums e.g. on top of http://www2.mandrakelinux.com/en,
which is the official site, there is an independant forum at http://www.mandrakeusers.org/index.php
and so on.
Personally, I prefer printed info, but as yet, I have been frustrated by the tendency of publishers to keep the books written in "geek speak" - like O'Really's Running Linux - it's got loads of info, but I dont appreciate the overly technical rhetoric (hence the book spends a lot of time in the air - after I've thrown it across the room!)
