Linux Admin, beginner book recomendatiosn.

Can anyone recommend me a good book regarding linux server administration. There are some oppurtunities coming up at my place of business for linux admins.

The things I am looking to learn about are best practices, security, logs, scripting etc..

Just want to get up2date with this information I would feel comfortable saying I know the basics inside and out of linux. But not when it comes to locking down a server and checking logs and setting up security things (such as notification of root login attemps, etc.. etc..)

I personally like the Linux Quick Fix Notebook. It covers a large assortment of topics and would probably be a good starting point. You can find a description here:

Hope that helps!

Linux Server Hacks is quite a handy book with some great tips. Published by O'Reilly I think.
