I started on Linux last week and have been using 'The Complete Reference - Linux Fifth Edition' (ISBN 0-07-222505-X). It's been pretty good, taking everything on at a basic level. It mainly covers Redhat, Mandrake and Suse though. I'm on Slackware, which although not covered in detail, you can apply the book to most of it. This forum has been great as well. Keep Googling everything as answers for most of you questions are on the web already. Be prepared to give up your life for a while though

Try www.slackware.com/book

Yes, it's written for slackware but it's all generic apart from the package management stuff.

lol, perhaps that needs updating, "windows is based on DOS"...

Windows hasn't been based on DOS since 3.1 (some argue win95).

Either way, the Winxp/NT kernel isn't based at all on DOS.
