As for books I can recommend UNIX Network Programming, Volume 1, Second Edition: Networking APIs: Sockets and XTI, by Richard Stevens, but it is really advanced one. I can also recommend his TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1 if you want to know about different protocols. Also check tutorial http://www.ecst.csuchico.edu/~beej/guide/net/. Check also http://codeguru.developer.com/internet/index.shtml it has a good example of a chat program. There is also an example of a chat program on MSDN
