Question What to Learn next?

Hello, I just recently ordered two linux books so that I can build a strong foundation of the Linux basics. I haven't recieved them yet though.

These are the two books I ordered:

Running Linux by Matt Welsh


The Linux Cookbook: Tips and Techniques for Everyday Use by Michael Stutz

I am about to go on a Learning Linux binge, and I would like to know what other materials I should get to maximize my learning!

Thanks for the help!

i find it very difficult to choose a Linux book -- many are rather out of date since Linux has evolved rapidly over the last two years.

Try Learning the Bash Shell, it will allow you to use the command line to its best effect.
