Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm totally new to Linux, currently working with servers and routers: Testing, configuring and trouble shooting. I don't have any of the network certifications but i'm currently working on the basic one (network+) and i have strong desire to learn...How did I get here? My employer gave me the opportunity to learn and grow in this area of interest. My question is what would be the best path to Linux proficiency relevent to network and a posibly a certification? Thank you.JJ
Honestly, the best way, IMHO, would be to read, read, and read more. There are many different types of certifications, so you need to ask yourself what you really want to get, and what you want in the long run. Sure, I could say to go for RHCE, etc, but it's what you want. What are you thriving for?
Thanks-it looks like I need to start working on RH033, RH131, RH133 and RH253-does this sounds like a logical path to RHCE? Also, formal education (school) vs self study for thse modules , what works best...ok ok..I know this mostly depends on the learning ability of individualson but on your HO what work best?
For me, I am completely self taught, never went to school for anything, including programming, and electronics. I can't honestly vouch for you, so I don't know what to say about your own personal preference.
