Good begginner Learning books
I would appreciate it if some people could tell of some good books to learn linux. I'm not looking for a reference book just yet. I just want a book, where I can get a very firm base knowledge of Linux. Something that has a good structure; preferebly one that has a learning sequence... ya know? basics - intermediate - advanced... stuff like that. Right now I'm looking for books mostly aimed towards beginners.

What would you suggest? I do not want to spend money on a book and find out that I got the wrong book or one that is written poorly.

Thanks a bunch! I really do dislike not understanding things fully. I don't wanna be a newbie anymore... I want to know what I'm doin lol! :rolleyes: Imagine that!

BTW, this question is asked all the time in the forums. Click on the search button at the top of the page. You'll find a lot of information that way.

Ooops, I'm sorry about that, I really should have looked before I posted! Stupid me... Thanks though.

do what i do, go to a bookstore like Barnes & Noble , browse thru the books & make note what u want.

go to this excellent web site for buying books (much better than Ebay)

i always buy books USED here & almost always they are brand new. Shipping is $3.49 per book.

Great site. I added it to my bookmarks and looks like I'm going to be doing a lot of shopping there.
