Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

A great beginning guide to Linux. I recommend this book be on your shelf if you run Linux. There are times when I have gone back to this for something that I have forgotten. It is an all around good Linux admin book and even comes with a CD (Redhat Linux I think). The book is paperback and is 643 pages.

Covers tons of stuff. A little bit of everything. Enough to get you started in Linux.
Redhat centric (if this is negative).
Great book. It's the first book I read when trying to learn Linux. Although it is Redhat centric this book covers a lot of ground. This book has a little bit of everything. If you have never loaded linux, or have loaded it already and still have questions, this book is for you. I still to this day go back to this book, on certain things that I forget.
Here are some of the topics included in this book:
-- Install Linux in a server configuration
-- Configure GNOME,KDE,X-Windows,and more
--Understand single-host administration and manage users
-- Learn to use file systems,create partitions,and configure quota settings
-- Compile the Linux kernel and unpack source code
-- Set up Internet services and learn the mechanics of FTP
-- Provide intranet services including NFS,NIS,SAMBA,DHCP,and LPD
-- Get details on advanced networking with Linux—TCP/IP,packet filtering,cookbook firewalls,IP port forwarding,and much more
Lots of good reviews at Amazon and Barnes and Noble too.
