Books on Linux
Not totally new to Linux. Have done distro installs before. At this point, I'm looking for a way out of the MS lock down I've been in. Looking for a good beginner/intermediate book. One that will cover things such as server installs as well as things like X-Windows/SAMBA installs from CLI. What I am looking to do is to install a file/server and mail system that is accessible from a Windows or OS X desktop.
i have not really decided as of yet. I am familiar with Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS. Have not used them enough to know the real differences though.
Thanks for the help.
