For just plain learning linux, forums are always an excellent help:


As a resource for learning perl on your own, I have found the following
site useful:


One good book that I know of and own for learning SVR4 UNIX: GNU/Linux
being a particular implementation of this standard is:

UNIX System V: A practical Guide; Third Edition; Release 4.2; By Mark G.

It contains all of the basics and is pretty cheep. Look at the table of
contents on Amazon for more info. -DN

So far I've learned Linux by the seat of my pants, but I've got a $2K training budget to spend, and I think a course will help me fill in the gaps and extend my knowledge a bit. I work mostly with various flavors of Debian and Perl scripts, so that where I'm focusing my training search.
// I think I should be able to afford an instructor-led course, but I'm open to anything that seems worthwhile. I registered last year for a UW training course only to have it cancelled a couple days prior, so I'm hoping someone might have some good suggestions for alternatives this time around.
