GNU assembler seems to have a strange syntax, and it would be very difficult to
learn in conjunction with the DOS/W32 counterpart. 

Try installing "nasm". It compiles assembly code in written in the ... MASM style.
Most books you get on intel processor assembly coding will be writing code
in this way.

I can't recommend a book. I have only ever read one assembly textbook, 
and it is in Dutch. <g>
