By JohnShell ·
Hi Everyone,

Any recommendations for the better books to learn Linux commands? I want to gain knowledge about that OS and how to work it.

Thank you,

Don't know anything?

Linux For Dummies. Bright yellow book - 14.95 in the bookstore.. like 20 - 30 in computer stores.

After that book, then you can just goto and download their Help Files. From that point on, you will understand what is being said and translated.

From a guy who learnt his basics 'on the job' (trembled in fear everytime he had to press the ENTER key after typing in a linux commond he didn't fully understand :) )

1. Google anything you don't understand.
2. Join up to a local Sys-Admin group (I have SAGE-AU here in Perth Western Australia).
3. Get hold of a spare box, install linux and hack away with reckless abandon.

Once you've got the basics down pat - consider some of the training courses that RedHat offer - very worthwhile!
