Any recommendations on a good general Linux book? I'll probably end up taking the Linux+ but I'd like to really learn the OS not just exam topics. Also what distrubution would you recommend to work on for the exam? I have Fedora and Mandrake. I had problems with Debian which make me think maybe it's the one I should be working with. Thanks.
I'm using it to prepare for the Linux+, but I had a course on Linux first. for that class, we used a Course Technology book on Linux Administration. For learning Linux, a lot of people suggested Running Linux by O'reilly.
For a distibution, I stayed with Red Hat (now Fedora), because that is what we worked with in class and is used by a lot of people. Others like Mandrake, because it is supposed to be more (new) user friendly. Knoppix is also a good choice, because you can boot from a cd and play with it, without having to repartition a working computer.
2020 Goals: 0 of 2 courses complete, 0 of 2 exams complete
