New to Linux
 
Hi,

I am very interested in Linux. I have a Dell Inspiron 9100 with 1gig, 80gig HD, Dlink DWL-g650 wifi adapter that was given to me. I want to use it to learn Linux. I have been told it will work with Linux witout any problems. I can figure out how to install Linux just fine. What I need help with is finding a really good book that can teach someone who doesn't know much about how to really use Linux, other than clicking thru wizards on the desktop, how to truely learn Linux.

I have looked througha few for dummy's books, and even a "from Windows to Linux" book. They didn't teach me much more than I already new. I know Windows extreemly well and understand how OSs work.

So can anyone recommend a book that they themselvs have had good experiences with that would be easy enough for a novice to learn from?

Please help out if you can!

Thanks

Hi
Welcome to LQ.
Of all the books about Linux I have bought the one that still remains on my book shelf is called
"How liux works" by "No starch press"

But by far the best resource is www.google.com/linux
:0).
Goodluck anyway,I'm sure other people will have some more recommendations.

Also see our Tutorials section (link at top of page), Rute and Running Linux and Linux in a Nutshell from O'Reilly. Once you have those, there are any number of books to add to your shelves...
