Question What is a good book for...


basically breaking down the linux OS... deep into the kernel...

Something that would hurt the novice but challenge the intermediate... know of one?

I've thought about reading Understanding the Linux Kernel, 2nd Edition. Thoughts, comments?

I have read "Understanding the Linux Kernel, 2nd Edition". It is an excellent book which makes no effort to be entertaining, just logical and factual.

My level of preparation for the book was that my first real job was writting operating systems for IBM.

I have read "Running Linux, Fourth Edition". It is also an excellent book.

The difference between the two books is that "Running Linux, Fourth Edition" starts at a very broad level and works its way down to an intermediate level of detail. "Understanding the Linux Kernel, 2nd Edition" starts out with complex low level logic and progresses to even finer detail.

What about overrall network design/architecture?

I have strong fundamentals and am currently in charge of about 30 servers and about 60 end-users. I am looking at refining our network and would love to read up on something that breaks down networking (especially E-Commerce) to a conceptual level where overral design is discussed moreso than how to configure a linux interface or routing table.

Any good ideas?

One way that I evaluate books is to go to Amazon.com and read the customer reviews on books that I might want to read.
