My name is Marcus Fernstrom, and I'm thinking about picking up Cobol as a step towards mainframes.

I'm a ColdFusion developer so not new to programming.

I've found a website that gives me access to an IBM box so I can play around and learn OS/400 and such, but I have no idea where to start, and that's why I'm writing this post.

I've set up a VM with Ubuntu and OpenCobol, I'm thinking about getting Murach's Mainframe COBOL as I hear good things about it, what else would be a good start?
