Need a book recommendation


I have just taken a new position as an Associate Unix admin. I know very little Linux and was hired based on other experience and the work I have done at the company so far. At the end of this month They are sending me to a RHCT course with an exam to follow.

My boss does not expect me to pass the first time, but I would like to impress him. What I need is a good book that will give me a decent foundation in about a months time. I have a background in Windows (MCSE) so a book that compares and contrasts how things are done in Windows vs. Linux would be most helpful.

Here we do everything at the command line, and it seems that many of the books I have looked at focus too much on using a GUI in Red Hat. So something that is command line centric would be great too.


Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

the RHCT course is covered very well by the semi-official book by Michael Jang. it's is officially for RHEL3, but is totally fine for RHEL4 with a few minor changes.
