      Hello

      I am new to Linux , I want to know about any good books in GnuAWK and Shell Scripting that take a learner from beginner ( novice level ) to an intermediate or Advanced level . I tried some book shops , but I was confused with so manyy books . Please help me in choosing a nice book for the above .

      I have another doubt , I have Redhat 9.0 install Cd's with me , Can I use those for installation or do I choose Fedora Core . Is Redhat 9.0 good for learning sbout Linux as my ambition is to be a Linux System Administrator specialising in Mail Servers or Security . What are the skills needed to be into Linux , do I need knowledge of C,C++,Java or are there anymore to learn ?

      Please help me out , so that I can start learning .

        All GNU tools have got good manuals. They clearly explain everything step by
        step. And they are acccurate too. I don't know about books, so I cannot
        comment. Here are some free online books:
        www.tldp.org
        www.freeprogrammingresources.com
        www.gnu.org

        Redhat 9.0 is enough. Most of the server's don't have latest version of
        Linux. Instead they use heavily patched old versions. Ofcourse, if you can
        get latest version, that is well and good. If not you can go on with Redhat
        9.0.
        You don't need to know anything to learn Linux. After you learn Linux, you
        will know everything :) If you know programming, you can understand it
        better. I prefer C, but if you want easy to use language, learn python.

        Please help me out , so that I can start learning .


        Good Luck.
