    What are a few good Books to learn/start with?

    Hello Everyone,

    I have just a quick question. We have a bookstore by us who have this 50% off sale on all computer books.

    I was wondering which books are some good learning material for webhosting? I have been looking at these so far....

    UNIX System Administrators Bible
    Learning Unix Operating System 5th Ed
    Apache Web Server Administration and E-Commerce Handbook
    Apache Server Bible
    DNS and BIND, 4th ed.

    What other resources would be helpful?

    Oooo, what book store is this?

    I'd be snatching up books left and right at 50% off. I'd stay away from those "Bible" books, they seem to cover the same amount of material that a book 300 pages less could

    Some books I'd suggest looking at are:

    Real World Linux Security (Second Edition if possible)
    Building Secure Servers with Linux (no idea if this is on bookshelves yet)
    Absolute BSD (Great book)

    I am sure you will have one around you, they have a few stores now.

    The store that is local is loaded with tons of books that I need.

    Do you think I should read UNIX books to help me with Linux books? When I start my servers, they will all be run on Red Hat, so it might be good to know both.
