Online Documentation

The Internet is full of information about Linux. One of the best resources is the Linux Documentation Project at http://www.tldp.org (or one of the dozens of mirror sites around the world), which has numerous short guides called HOWTOs, along with some full manuals. For online information about the GNU utilities covered in this book, consult http://www.gnu.org (also widely mirrored). The Free Software Foundation, which is in charge of the GNU project, publishes its documentation in a number of hardcopy and online books about various tools.

Each distribution maintains its own website, and contains documentation for the software it provides as well as guides to maintaining your system under that distribution.
