[PLUG] Tech Book Publishers & Book Suggestions?

With which other publishers are such arrangements available?

Some of the O'Reily books looked useful and interesting but few for 
Linux newbies.  Any suggestions from any publisher for getting 
networking with file and printer sharing set up via Debian through a 
wired router connected to 2 Win98SE machines?

Any suggestions for general (basic) reference books for using 
Debian with KDE to maintain, configure, backup, secure, etc. the 
system. (Note: I don't need to be an expert, programmer, hacker, or 
guru.  I just want to be able to get things working and keep them 
working).  I spent hours in various books stores looking at Linux 
books and borrowed several Linux books from our library system 
last summer but most were too detailed and technical for me.

I found some decent books on KDE basics,, Firefox 
and such, though a bit old.  Transferring what I learned using 
Windows apps. for the past 10 years should not be a problem.  
Learning a new operating system and getting it configured and 
optimized is mostly where I could use some help.
