I want to learn about assembly language, but I don't know how to start.
I don't understand about register. Maybe you have good advice or good book for me.

Randall Hyde has a fantastic text book http://homepage.mac.com/randyhyde/webster.cs.ucr.edu/www.artofasm.com/index.html

It assumes you've already programmed in a high-level language. If you've never programmed before, I don't recommend you start with assembly though. The best "complete beginner" oriented assembly book I've come across is Jeff Duntemann's "Assembly language step by step with Linux" http://www.duntemann.com/assembly.htm, though I still think it requires prior programming experience to appreciate, since the author himself (seemingly not noticing) makes a lot of references to higher level languages like Pascal & Delphi while explaining topics.

For complete beginners (and unfortunately most non-beginners), I think the best book is "How to Design Programs" http://www.htdp.org/, free to read too. In my opinion, you'll want to learn a language such as C afterwards before stepping into assembly. Even Duntemann chickens out about 2/3 of the way through his book saying you'll need to learn C to carry on (after which he basically tells you how to call C library routines from assembly...)

The best thing you can do is make a choice and get started. Don't rush your education.  ;)

Hello bonzai, and hello ASM Community !

I'm also learning the assembly language just now :)

I was in the library, and I had lent the book of Jeff Duntemann (Second Edition), and it seems to be a great book! To me: I have some C experience, may we could learn the whole stuff together ;)

I think that will be make more fun, if two folks are doing and discussing about the same stuff!

By the way: I'm from Germany, that's why my English is more or less good ^^ I hope we will understand each other anyway!
