This is the nearest that I get:
Essential System Admin: Frisch (a book)
Beginning Linux Programming (Matthew & Stones: (the three first chapters, on the linux env, and shell programming) Wrox press, but I have a suspicion that different editions are very different)
g (essentially, the same as 'The Linux Quick Fix Notebook'; the book is more readable, but the website is more up to date, unless there has been a new edition)
DNS and Bind (a book; concentrates on Bind, which you should probably avoid, as opposed to DNS, which you can't, but the first few chapters on networking are particularly clear)
I'm not all that keen on some of the 'standard works' on bash scripting, but try this
(although, you need to dig around a bit to find the various things that you are interested in), this
, and move on to a side order of this.
The 'Speaking Unix' series here
, has much to commend it, but I struggle to pull out just one link for you, so you'll have to do your own searching in the page above.
And, on a more general note, you get useful links for almost anything Linux by searching for 'tutorial' and the Linux specialism in which you are interested....particularly if you do it here
