See my .sig for some good reference materials, especially the Linux Cookbook. Also, there's another newbie reference book under the O'Reilly link.

From being a newbie and trying to learn, I have searched many sites. I have found that this site is by far the best. The folks are more friendly, knowledgable, and willing to help. If you use the proper etiquette when posting questions or replying it will go a long way. I am also happy to say that the moderators here really do a super job policing the site and making it a pleasure to be involved here. Thanks to all of you!
