System Administration scripting


Hi,

I'd like to know some good resources, links, e-books to learn basic Linux system administration scripting. I know how to write very basic BASH shell scripts so I'm still at beginner level. There are so many docs out there that I'd like to narrow down people's opinion's on the best easy to understand resources that are available. Eventually I'd like to learn basic PERL as well.

Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Also there are reference books you can buy (maybe even available at your local library). Search for unix bash on Amazon

Another thing I do is look at scripts already installed in /etc/init.d/ or /etc/rc.d/
As a non-root user, copy them to your home directory and experiment.
