Any good linux books?

Hi Guys,

For my job i need to start learning Linux and my knowledge of Linux is zero.

Does anyone know of or recommend any good books on Linux, that start at the beginners level (e.g. explanation of basic commands) up to advanced (e.g. setting up web/ftp/dns/servers, locking down servers, firewall configs).

Thanks for your help

PS. Preferably Red Hat flavour!

'A Practical Guide to Linux' has it all (according to pcplus).

Price is around £20

Author- Mark G Sobell

ISBN- 0-13-147823-0

Don't know who sells it, but with the above info you should be able to track it down at amazon et al.

Hope this helps.

The Linux Cookbook by Michael Stutz

ISBN 1-59327-031-3

I have seen copies in W. H. Smiths, I can't remember the cost as I bought mine in Florida.

Also a free online magazine call Tux click here subscribe and you can download the PDF mag from them.

Thanks guys.

I went with the Practical Guide to red hat linux. Seems to have everything i need.

Will also check out Tux.

Welcome. Tux is quite good, targetted at the novic linux user (or the undecided, like me) so is easy to understand.
