Re: Good books
I like The Unix Companion by Harley Hahn. Running Linux which is published by O'Reilly
is good too. I also like the MIS Press Slackware series books. The first one
Configuring and Installing Linux is written by Patrick Volkerding. I just
bought Debian GNU/Linux Guide to Installation and Usage which looks good. THe
CD is screwed up which is included with it. This is a disappointment because it
will probably negatively impact all the work done by Debian developers.
