The Linux documentation site www.tldp.org has a lot of info plus pdf
books. The site for whichever distro you use is recommended.

I've always found it best to go to the book store knowing a problem
you've had and solved. Pick up each book and look for the answer to the
problem. If it makes sense to you it's probably talking at your level,
if not, keep looking. Also one book doesn't usually cut it. I have two
or three I use all the time: Red Hat Fedora Linux 3, Linux
Administrator's Handbook, and Unix in Plain English ($10 on a Flea
Market table).
