    Book on SysAdmin / Web hosting? Links?

    There seems to be books on every single subject out there, but is there a book specifically on how to run a hosting company from the technical side?

    I'm talking stuff like:

    - Setting up a dedicated server
    - Setting up and using Cpanel / WHM / Plesk / Ensim
    - DNS! DNS! DNS!
    - Upgrading software (server, PHP, MySQL, etc.), OS, kernel, etc.
    - Basic security
    - Server maintenance and other tips

    Etcetera, etcetera... I'm thinking something along the lines of the O'Reilly "Hacks" series, but specifically for web hosts - "Web Hosting Hacks".

    If someone here wrote this, I'd buy it in a New York minute.

    On this topic, besides Hosting Life, are there any other related sites that folks can recommend for administering a web server?

    Thanks!
