Hi Adam.

I'm not sure of whether you're looking for online resources or

Online there exists the Linux documentation Project which has several
guide books on various topics.  Go to
and look for the The Linux Network Administrator's Guide, Second
Edition.  It's getting a bit old with the last update in March 2000, but
has a wealth of general network information.

For security there is also the Linux Administrator's Security Guide at  However, it appears incomplete, but may
well have a lot of the information you're looking for.

If you are using Debian, there are a number of manuals available at that may also help with other distributions
as well.

Don't overlook the HOWTOs most likely installed with your base
distribution or the latest versions can be found at  These are generally task specific
documents that focus on configuring some aspect of your system in a
general way.

If you prefer tree-ware, you can do worse than the O'Reilly books
available at Borders, B&N, etc.
