Java Unix newbie: manuals

Hi to everybody! I'm new italian unix user and, of course, i 've got problems during my "administrative" part. Does anyone know where to get some manuals (.pdf, .doc ...) for the unix commands?
Thank in advance!

if you log into your box and type man man you will get the man page for the man command.

or man &ltcommand&gt

most commands are localed in /usr/bin /usr/sbin/ usr/local/bin

your local book store is always the best place to start. I am extreamly fond of the most books by Oreilly. as i find them easier to read but do cover a great deal w/ good expliantion of what they are doing.

Next would be a search engin.
