Well, those are just reference books for all of the opcodes/mnemonics and other stuff, not really to learn from. There are TONS of great tutorials and sample code on the net. Since you posted NASM, search for "Linux NASM Tutorials", download a bunch, get comfy and go through them.

Problem with the books, they are usually OLD!!!

I found this textbook (which is free)

http://www.amazon.co...t/dp/0975283847

It's for Linux, which is a plus, and it's x86 (but with AT&T syntax). It's also from 2004, not sure if it's outdated.

The way to assemble the code the book gives is:

as test.s -o test.o
ld test.o -o test

What's the difference between .s and .asm?
as and nasm?

Again, sorry for my ignorance! And thanks.
