Question for those who are experienced shell script writers:

What would you recommend as the top three URL's to go to to learn 
shell script basics?

At the moment, I'm running a Linux box, I want to make a copy of all 
my accounts httpdocs folders, and tell mysql to create a dump for 
each account's DB's in the account backup folder.

At first, I don't mind if I have to edit the file when adding or 
deleting accounts, but it seems to be a pain in the butt to have to 
edit the file every time I want to run it.

I would like to create a new directory with the date and time, then 
move all the accounts and dumps into it. I can then create an 
AppleScript to download them to my Mac and burn CD's.

Suggestions? Thanks!

Where there's a will, there's a way.
