Seems to me that it depends a great deal on which writer you find
easiest to follow. If you want a sample of Michael Lucas' style go to
Big Scary Daemons on the O'Reilly website. ( www.onlamp.com/bsd). I have
Greg's book and it has safely guided me through all the basics. I still
refer to it from time to time. Michael's material on the web is also
easy to read. If you can afford it I'd get both.
