: I'm looking for a good, complete, Linux administration manual WITHOUT a CD.
: I was thinking of the Linux Bible, but having recently read a description of
: it, it sound like it's really basic. Is there some sort of a consensus on a
: good general purpose, intermediate to advanced book on the subject?
Just about any general UNIX book will do. You don't necessarily have to buy
a sys. admin. book for Linux. Check out the O'Reilly book, Essential
System Administration (has an armadillo on the front). This will be my
next book to get (I heard of it from a co-worker who is also a Linux
freak like me).
Of course, you could look in sunsite in the /pub/Linux/docs/linux-
documentation-project directory. There are PLENTY of good ps/dvi/ascii
files which go into extensive coverage over Linux.
Matt Welsh, who maintains the LDP and also moderates comp.os.linux.announce)
has a book publish by O'Reilly called Running Linux. A lot of it comes
from his Linux Installation Guide which you can get from sunsite (it's one
of the LPD files). But, he goes into other things, such as networking and
programming Linux. I suggest this book, too.
