    Hello and welcome,
    First please don't shout when you type in all caps that is considered shouting and it both is impolite and makes your posts difficult to read.

    Second you could start with these links:
    http://www.linux.org/docs/online_books.html
    http://www.infosyssec.net/infosyssec/linux2.htm

    These have Linux books but also other computer books online:
    http://www.freetechbooks.com/
    http://groups.msn.com/TheCompleteCom...inuxbooks.msnw

    Good luck if you have any further questions we will be here.
    Long live the revolution!
    Have a nice day.
    If you want real change vote Libertarian!

    I am also new to Linux about three months new and the first book I bought was the Linux pocket guide. It is a small pocket size book that has essential commands in it and it is only ten dollars a must for a linux newbie trying to learn the command line.

    Linux is for those who want to know why their computer works.

    True- But look carefully at the most recent update info for the book. Unfortunately a lot of which is just hitting the mass market is sadly outdated.
    IMHO you would probably be better served by the online publications as referenced earlier in this topic and/or WIKI sites if one is available.
    Hope this helps.
