Can someone tell me, which book is the best for learning linux. It should not apply only to one distro and it should explain the basic linux things like boot process, how to configure services (startup, stop,...), some things about the filesystem and its folders, permissions, the basic commands, networking etc.
If you give an advice, please explain why you like this book.
I want to learn to configure and use my linux box from a shell.
Maybe you have suggestions.
thanks in advance
