    Good book for a networking newbie?

    Any recommendation for a book on basic networking principles? I know how to do general router configurations (port forward, wifi config, etc) but I'm lost with anything much past that. Should I start with a N+ book?

    Apogee install question

    Are there any springs used to install the Apogee onto a 939 system? The only hardware that came for doing a 939 mount was a few spacers, lock washers, and screws. I would think there are some springs or something to apply pressure to the CPU. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.

    Any reason to not buy DDR2 right now?

    So with memory prices being pretty low would it be wise to buy some DDR2 right now for the AM2 platform? Have they even decided on DDR2 for AM2? I was just thinking that I should grab it now while it's cheap. 169.99 for 2gigs of DDR2 just sounds like a damn good deal. OCZ
