    Check this thread for Linux books.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Isn't there a text book specified for this course? Usually, the professor will also provide a "recommended reading" list with additional resources to the class, at least in my experience.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
