Anything by O'Reilly and Associates, with a blue spine.  This includes
_Essential System Administration_, _TCP/IP Network Administration_,
_Sendmail_, _Using Named and Bind_, and _Using NFS and NIS_.  (I hope
I got the titles right.)

Also, the Nemeth et al book on Unix System Administration is good.

A subscription to _Unix Review_ might be a good idea, especially if you
can get it for free.  Look for a colleague who has a free subscription
and get a subscription qualification card from him.

Browse the man pages and other on-line docs -- they may be dense, but
they are certainly authoritative.  ;^)
