Running Linux is an excellent book that every linux administrator 
should have.  Another good one is Linux in a Nutshell, which covers 
most of the standard linux commands.

Also, IRC channels can be an excellent source of help.  The place I 
usually hang out is #grasshoppers on irc.oftc.net, most of the people 
there are pretty friendly and will help you if they can.
