    recommend a good Linux book?

    Hi everyone,

    Thought I'd ask if anyone would recommend a good Linux book?

    Am running a Linux box now with Apache and want to really start understanding Linux better.

    Thanks.

    PS books are great to start off with, but nothing is better than experience No book will teach you how to survive through hacks and crashes, and rpm dependencies and unexpected stuff that happens at 3am on new years eve

    there are plenty of good howto's and other documents published in internet, free of charge.... don't buy books, you can get the same info for free

    Hehe, but in my opinion, it's like having a teacher by your side ... the more books you have, the more teachers you have by your side but of course same subject books and different authors will help you to learn faster and what those authors/teachers are talking about and trying to explain to a dumb fool like me.
