Is there a book like....

I am trying to work with MDK 9.1 for a while now. Is there a book like "Red Hat 8 for dummies", that I can use in MDK?
May be if I were to lay a book down by the keyboard I could make some headway.

Thanks in advance,

redhat and mandrake are so close, that you could mostly use a redhat book
with mandrake. just some of the setup tools and a few
other things would be different.

after buying 38 Linux books on Ebay, i found this site which has better prices. I buy used books on it that are in excellent shape or brand new.

hey Digger....i dunno about u but i'm a newbie to linux.....and one book i'd recommend to u would be "Red Hat 9 Bible" by Christopher Negus. I bought it 3 days back ( it comes with 3 cds of Red Hat 9), got rid of mandrake 9.1 on my system, and installed Red Hat 9 which came along with the book.
So far the book has impressed me to the extent that i read it while having lunch,breakfast,dinner The language is extremely simple and in plain english rather than techie mumbo-jumbo. I bought it from a local bookstore here after reading reviews on it on Get the book if u r a total dummy like me in Linux.....i believe its got more than enough to even appeal to much experienced linux-users!
With Regards,

Another book you might consider buying is "Beginning Red Hat Linux 9" by Wrox publishers.Extremely user-friendly and simple to use,it covers all topics of interest to a newbie and comes with 2 CDs which have the publisher's version of Red Hat Linux 9.

And also


How did you copy that many URLs in a reasonable time? From a file? I always copy from my browser's bookmarks, slow and tedious...
