good Linux administration books?


hello,


I was wondering if someone could offer some good Linux system administration books. I've been using RedHat since 6.2 and have learned a lot through trial, error (and posting here!), but I'm looking for some a few good reference books to have around, especially if they happen to touch on administering things like FTP, etc. Does anyone have suggestions? Thanks so much.


-Cliff

I like the"Linux System Administration Black Book" by Dee-Ann LeBlanc.A bit dated(you get Red Hat 6.2 with it I think)but a good general problem solving guide.
You can probably pick it up cheap as Coriolis is going bankrupt and most bookstores are heaving thier product onto the bargain table

I like O'Reilly's Running Linux by Matt Welsh, Matthias Kalle Dalheimer, and Lar Kaufman. My copy is a bit dated, but if it isn't already out, I hear they're coming out with a new ediiton.

My personal fav is the "Linux System Administration Handbook"((pub. Prentice Hall - Nemeth, Snyder, Hein and others).

Good solid advice. Period. This book covers everything from implementation to technology to admin policy. Lots of real-life examples of what not to do and _why_. I have bought several Linux admin books and this one kicks butt, It's (almost) too bad O'Reilly missed this one.
