Overview

In the wake of the highly successful Sams Teach Yourself Unix in 24 Hours, this book focuses on the additional Unix commands that an advanced user or beginning system administrator needs to know in order to administer and maintain a Unix system. The book includes coverage of the key Unix variations: Red Hat Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, and Apple's Mac OS X environment. The book will not be a comprehensive solution to all problems facing new system administrators, but instead is a tutorial introduction to the process of learning about and maintaining a running Unix server.

I found this book to be a very good introduction to the world of Unix system administration. Specifically, I liked that it covers not only Linux (ho hum, lots of admin books cover Linux) but also Solaris and Mac OS X. Indeed, I can't find any other material about the Unix inside OSX (other than another book by Dave Taylor, 'Learning Unix for Mac OS X') so that's a particular bonus to me. The book also emphasizes step-by-step exploration of problems and debugging configurations, both greatly important to me as a newbie. My recommendation: great for anyone wanting to learn more about advanced Unix and how to think like an admin. One hiccup: B&N says it includes a CDROM, but mine didn't have one. I think B&N is incorrect in this detail. Otherwise, highly recommended!
