A useful reference to the Linux operating system, if rather outdated. The basics of Linux remain the same after 12 years, but there has been a great deal of progress in new releases.

For people new to Linux, I would recommend a newer book, especially one that deals with Ubuntu or similar distros.

This was my very first of two linux reference books I had ordered. It is somewhat overwhelming but if you love biiiiiig books this is the one. The rest you can pick up online in community wiki's and forums where the OS was born. Nostalgia!!!

This is excellent: it is the complete 'The Linux Documentation Project.' Documents are added and removed in various versions, so check out all the versions you can if you need to read such a book.

used this book to teach an Intro to Linux course... it wasn't laid out logically but did provide a reasonable overview... wouldn't recommend owning it...too broad, not enough depth.
