The purple Unix System Administrators Handbook or the green Linux  
Administrators Handbook http://www.admin.com/ -- two current editions  
of the same thing. It's a one-stop-shop for everything intermediate  
to advanced. Gives you lots of unhealthy ideas about improvement too ;-)

Once you've used it up, the case studies in the back are a good laugh  
(and they're supposed to be). I recommend it to everyone, whatever  
level you're at.

I have to admit I've never read purple or green, because I keep my  
treasured red edition. I've never used a better Unix/Linux book.
