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.
