A book like The Visual QuickPro Guide to Unix for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger
or Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell is more likely to answer the questions
you are asking at the moment than a Mac OS X book. I don't think that
either of the books has been updated for OS X 10.5 yet. This shouldn't
be a big problem as I don't think that anything much changed at the
Unix level between the two OS versions.
