Hello, I'm very new to Linux, and I'd like to find a resource (book)
that will get everything from the GUI to the command line and teach 
me how to use it.  I'm very familiar with DOS, and I would like to 
learn all the capabilities that LINUX offers beyond the extensively
limited abilities of DOS.  I'm very computer literate, as in I assemble
computers in my spare time and am an avid user of Windows, but not the
wizards, I like all the shortcuts and such.  I would like to take some 
time to delve into the realm of open-source software, and open-source
scripting languages like PHP, so this was my next step.  I took some time 
to do a search on Amazon.com to look for a good book to use, but the 
descriptions are not nearly sufficient, so I thought I'd turn to some 
people with some experience in the field for help.  Thanks in advance 
for direction you can give me.

P.S. - I realize on the linux usergroup I've set myself up for some massive
flamage for mentioning windows, and I apologize.
