See the Handbook's Bibliography for a good list.

I use Nemeth, et.al's "Unix System Administartion Handbook, 2nd. Ed."
Great book, govers BSD/OS but has good general admin tips.

For security, the various O'Reilly books should cover it in sufficient
detail.

The Complete FreeBSD covers 2.1.x, and for system setup, it could be
called "out of date."  But half of the thing is printed manpages, and
there is some general-reference material in there.
