need more linux admin books!

We're trying to switch to Linux (have installed Enterprise Red Hat here), and I've looked through the books posted on this site, but for some there aren't any reviews. We already have A Practical Guide to Red Hat Linux 8, and while it seems to have a lot of info, it often hasn't had much at all on the stuff we're actually trying to do. We're not doing much shell scripting or Perl or anything like that, but we do need more complete how-to info on a lot of Linux installation, partitioning, setting up and administration stuff. I'm guessing that if we found a good book on two on Linux admin stuff in general, then it would pretty much apply to our Red Hat as well.

Can you point me to the books I need?
