What is a good beginning book or text that can help me get started coding asm. I would like to use flat assembler and I'm on Windows. I have basic coding skills with C and I understand binary arithmetic and hex fairly well.

I have had access to some very nice textbooks on Safari Books online, but most books are too Masm specific. Personally, I wanted something with Nasm and I also like the light weight idea behind fasm, which is why I'm here.

Overall, I don't see a problem with having to adapt other asm text, but for someone that has never used asm before, what is the best way to go without too much confusion.

Study the example programs inside fasmw package.

Change them and write your own. Begin some middle range project (more complex than you can handle in this moment) write some part, and ask on forum when some problems arise. Smile

I will try the fasmw package as mentioned.

Don't forget, I'm an absolute beginner. Is there something specific I should concentrate on?

Start with the tutorial at http://flatassembler.net/docs/tutorial.zip it will give you the basic idea of ASM and FASM programming. Later on proceed to the FASM programmers manual and Intel's reference manuals.
