Could you recommend some good linux books


Starting my course in IT next month, hoping to get into network administration, i was wondering if anyone could recomend some good tech books on networking and security. I have seen a few books around the bookshops but i'm not sure which ones are worth buying.

I don't know much about the book availability online, but there are lots of resources available online which can get u a better grip on the details of networking....

Real World Linux Security by Bob Toxen is a killer book.

Hacking linux exposed was a really good book.
Haven't read real world linux security so cant compare them.
