Before you become an expert programming networking code in Linux, it is worth bringing yourself up to speed with Linux network admiinistration. The "NAG" is online at http://www.faqs.org/docs/linux_network/ but if you prefer wood pulp - see http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/linag2/book/

After that, I'd agree with Sunny that Stevens is your next stop. See http://www.kohala.com/start/unpv12e.html

When you are a beginner in C programming, you should learn the fundamental things in C first. Before doing a network (which is very difficult) you should know C blind!!!
The easiest way to find literature is, for example, amazon.com. Just seek "network programming in C" there (or what u want) but I recommend you to start steady in C.
