Some help for the "new guy"

By gpirnatjr ·
Like many of you out there I am basically self taught. I am a systems/network administrator for a branch of a very large company. The home office will help us out of any major jam, as well as advise on little ones. Anyway this was never my intended field but I find myself drawn into it and very interested in making it my career. I need to play some catch up, and would appreciate it if anyone could help me with good books that will aid in the learning process. Too basic is okay, I can always skip the stuff I already know, but I do feel I need a refresher. Thanks in advance.

Everything you need is on the internet and most likely free if you know where to find it. If you really want some handy books, go to barnes&noble and get some "networks for dummies". you can scan through their whole catalog of books. and since you can do this online, you never need to leave your computer!!!! isn't technology wonderful?

The best "reference" texts that I have all are published by O'Reilly Media:

The "Annoyances" and "Nutshell" series are especially helpful.
