RUTE's User Tutorial and Exposition, by Paul Sheer.
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Recommended by Benoit Girard
RUTE starts with *very* elementary notions: bits and bytes. Chapter three is an introduction to the PC Hardware, so you see...
But it builds systematically, never using a notion that was not introduced beforehand, and goes on to the higher spheres of system administration over its 660 pages.
Most other books assume you already know some arbitrary set of notions and use them without defining them first. Others try to be systematic, but fail to organize the material in the proper way.
RUTE is the best one in this regard.
