it's nearly impossible to "learn" linux. there's sooo much stuff to complete. i learned nearly all it by reading through a couple of books and learning from mistakes. you'll find some online books at mcp.com. i am in a college and so i "abused" the ink jet printers. i just read the, performed by using it..and browse more. additionally, there are some books in publications you can purchase. try searching amazon . com on their behalf. they've sales ratings that is very good.

best of luck
The very first book to obtain I suggest is Running Linux by Matt Welsh. ISBN: 1-56592-469-X. It is good to understand by playing going to, do the installation and also have a play, you'll work the fundamentals yourself and employ books for that odd help etc... I suggest AGAINST Linux The Bottom Line Is, not so useful whatsoever. You will find several good sites for example:
http://www.linuxdoc.org - The guides include released books downloadable free of charge. http://www.linuxnewbie.org http://www.deja.com/usenet/ - for trying to find response to questions. http://www.google.com/linux - particularly Linux.


Take a look at amazon . com.com for many reviews.

Thanks individuals are wonderful leads
Dana,

Browse the O'Reilly books, I think there is a great book on Linux. Anything O'Reilly is *highly* suggested -- they've excellent books generally. I usually keep your apache, perl and SQL ones by me whatsoever occasions.

Vlad, regrettably the 'Linux inside a nutshell' book does range from O'Reilly range, and is among the very couple of that does not meet anticipation. Regrettably it is not as comprehensive as it may be also it fails in a number of areas.

A few of the SAMS books are sufficient, but the easiest method to learn Linux is :

1. Obtain the book Admin pointed out - I'm able to attest to it.
2. Generate a Linux box in your own home (486, 16mb RAM - old product is fine) and employ RedHat or Caldera or SuSE (the second if you are searching for free)
3. Feel the system and adjust it. That's always the easiest way.
4. One tip - avoid using the main user (su) unless of course you have to adjust remove/move/etc. Create a new take into account yourself.

Cheers!
If you're searching for some thing like what webhosting companies will i would read "LINUX Administration For Idiot's". Don't be prepared to much from the idiot's book. http://catalog.dummies.com/product.asp?isbn=0764505890

I learned Linux while experimenting by using it.
Books help too. However in my option, it is best that you simply run linux (Redhat) and have fun with it...
I've found the Linux the bottom line is for any Linux expert to become very helpful after i forget flags on the command line command, or when I must lookup a fast regexp that missed my thoughts. For a newcomer book or sole book to understand Linux isn't book for this. I've found it helpful weight loss a specialist reference when ever you your investment stupid command line switch )

Harmful to teaching or learning Linux.
You will find simply to many good books to title all of them. I recommend visiting your local book shop a searching in the game titles. What assisted me probably the most would be a book known as "Learn Red-colored Hat in 24 Hrs." It had been targeted for the newby, and extremely assisted me out.

I've Osborne's "LINUX Administrator, A beginner's Guide" and Osborne's "UNIX The Entire Reference" Both of them are very detailed books. If you would like just instructions as well as their functions, something for a fast reference, I would suggest "UNIX The Entire Reference" it not just covers LINUX but the many other tastes of UNIX such Hewlett packard-UX, and Solaris. For any on the job How-To, Like establishing a server, and setting up DNS, FTP, HTTP, SMTP, POP, and SSH, I'd opt for "Linux The beginner's Guide" Additionally, it has a copy of Red-colored Hat 6.1. Both books retail at $39.99. I am sure some book stores on-line may have them in a cheaper cost.
