Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
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.
