    If you are interested in programming, start with Beej's Guide.

    You really need to get yourself a copy of "Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment" and/or "TCP/IP Illustrated" (at least Vol. 1). Both are by Richard Stevens and are the definitive works on the subject.

    Others prefer the "Internetworking with TCP/IP" by Doug Comer. But I've always found that the Stevens books have more detail and have better explainations.
