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.

That is a pretty good size network, along with a good number of Linux servers. Anytime you deal with security, things get really fun.
As for my grammar mistake? Your from the UK! We can't compete with your grammar skills! People in the United Kingdom have a MUCH more broader vocabulary.
Reason for Nagios...
We were originally running an application called What's Up Gold. But licensing started to get really expensive, and the application would constantly cry wolf. I came across Nagios at a data center. I noticed many users used Nagios, so I did some research and decided to use this as our central monitoring system. But as it turns out, Nagios is a bit more complex. Actually, Nagios is just a pain to configure for the first time, but looks promising in the end.
We are basically looking for a monitoring system to keep an eye over the entire network. Right now I am only configuring our servers, but soon I would like to configure monitoring for all our network devices and interlace MRTG into Nagios. With servers spreading across 5 sites and 1 data center, I figured this would be the best solution.
