    new to linux, need assistance please


    hello, I am still new to linux and was wondering about good tutorials/books to help advance my knowledge. can anyone please help me with some of these? I am now reading linux for the beginning mage but as I skim through the end, I realize that this is very basic and would like to know where to go from there, I like the format of the mage book as a good walkthrough if anyone knows of any that kind of pick up where this leaves off. Anything would help. Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I can vouch for the Linux in a Nutshell book. It is a great resource. Also are a couple others that I've never perused, but that I've heard a lot about, and come highly recommended from others.

    If nothing else, reviewers seem to agree that the author has a good sense of humor!

    i'd also note it is not exactly cheap! it is quite big, though...

    One of the first guides I picked up was Linux for Dummies. Incredibly easy to follow, and quite informative.
    And the Linux Bible, suggested by atreyu, is very in depth.

    Just be sure that whatever book you pick up is a recent publication. These things become obsolete extremely quickly.

    I still think Slackware Linux Essentials is a good start,
    also take a look at LinuxLinks if you have not already done so.
    Welcome &
    Best wishes!

    well, how about free? check the list of free e-books here (PDFs mostly, i think). some of them are advanced, but a couple you may find useful. particularly the one about command line, I would think.
