View Full Version : Good book on Linux
December 9th, 2007, 12:55 AM
Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good book which teaches you the ins and outs of Linux. It seems like Linux for Dummies only goes through some simple set up procedures and not anything really specific. I want a book which gets a bit more detailed and possibly goes over some more terminal code. Thanks for your time.
Something specific to Ubuntu would be nice too.

I don't really have that many linux books handy, but the one that really stood out (for me at least) was "LPIC 1 Exam Cram 2" (ISBN 0-7897-3127-4) since i took the LPIC courses.
It has a little bit of everything in a real easy format.
The other one i'd recommend is the "Linux Administration Handbook" (ISBN 0-13-148004-9) if you want to get into the networking/administrating side of things.

These books look great. This is mainly a present for a friend who is a new Ubuntu user, so I'll be checking all of these out.
That online guide looks great, thanks!
Again, thanks for all of your suggestions!
