[CentOS] Recommendation/pointers please - Need to brush up on CentOS/Linux command line tools

Two books I turn to mostly:

UNIX System Administration handbook 3rd edition by Evi Nemeth et al. - a 
good general coverage, which breaks down the differences between how 
Redhat, Solaris, HP-UX, and FreeBSD handle things.

O'reilly Unix in a Nutshell (3rd edition) - a little Solaris-centric, 
but good for reviewing commands in paper form, and a handy little 
resource for when I forget sed and awk syntax.
