Put aside those man pages, get Linux answers you can really use, and get them fast, with Linux in a Nutshell, Fifth Edition.
The authors offer concise, precise discussions of probably 98 percent of what you'll need to know to run or administer Linux on a day-to-day basis: networking, Linux commands, boot (and multi-boot) options, package management, bash and korn shell scripting, pattern matching, editors, sed and gawk, even source code management with both CVS and Subversion.
This new edition has been thoroughly tested on Fedora, Novell/SuSE, and Debian systems, so you can rely on it with your current distro and the one you might work with next. At 900-plus pages, it's some big "nutshell." But, like the other O'Reilly Nutshell quick references we've seen, it's exceptionally accessible, well-organized, and useful.
