[TriLUG] Book recommndation for newbie
Wed, 05 Sep 2001 19:27:21 -0700
personally, i think the best docs are on the net. The NAG and SAG
(network administrator guide, system administrator guide) and all the
docs stuffed on your cd coupled with a few searches on google should
solve almost any need. The O'reilly's linux books are pretty good too,
if you really like paper.
