Re: recommendations on beginner's book needed
- For someone starting from scratch I would recommend:
"A Practical Guide to Linux" by Mark Sobell. It is for those who do
not know what "bash" is and have no UNIX experience at all. It is one
of the best.
After you graduate from that book I would suggest:
"Running Linux", one of the O'Reilly books. It will give you more
specific vendor info about apps like Samba, Apache, KDE etc.
