Thanks for the info. I actually saw that one at B&N but passed it up as I
thought it was too focused on pure UNIX and didn't realize it covered all
the off-shoots as well. I'll check it out but it's a few years old. I'm not
sure it matter much with UNIX but old computer books tend to be, well, old.
