Re: [BOOKS] Linux Books

Most unfortunately, there are no Linux books good enough to serve as a comfortable 'first read'. There are such books for FreeBSD, though. Notably Brian Tiemann's books.

Do you want to learn Linux system administration or network administration? Because, in my opinion, they are very different things.

Is this for professional purposes? All of my professional experience with Linux has been with Red Hat, of which there are many books.
