What reference Materials do you recommend for Mandrake?

As I'm new to Linux...God knows I love keeps me working...

But I've been wanting to expand my horizons...I understand Mandrake is the place to start...and I've already installed it on my dual 1.2MP machine...I'm wondering where I can find reference materials...

Any books you recommend?


I'll let you know if I ever figure out the, what I believe to be...DNS issues on my Mandrake 9.1 box...

But I want something I can look at and reference to...

Any suggestions?

Not specific to Mandrake, but the best Linux guide out there is RUTE.

I wrote an article on how to get started with linux:

as for referance material is your friend. Searching this forum (using the search feature) for any questions will always bring up someone else who has asked the question before. That is why they have the "has this question been asked before" button here, it get's monotinous. Anyways, feel free to post anyquestions you have, play around in the console using:
]#man (program name) httpd (man= manul, very informative)
]#program --help (program name and the "--help" will show you how to use it
