For general information, its hard to beat the RedHat Linux Bible (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0764539388/qid=1109915903/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/103-5698393-7075027?v=glance&s=books).
For a quick reference, check out O'Reilly's Linux Pocket Guide (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0596006284/qid=1109915977/sr=2-1/103-5698393-7075027?v=glance&s=books).
And for a nice samba reference, check out Samba-3 By Example (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0131472216/qid%3D1109916040/sr%3D11-1/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F1/103-5698393-7075027).

There are tons of other great books out there, but I've found these particularly helpful. I would suggest checking both http://www.linux.org/ and http://books.slashdot.org/ for book references as well.

What about a great book that can be use will almost any distro? Uhh that would be the "Linux Cook Book" which you can get at amazon or half.com

I really love Fedora Core 3 For Dummies, but don't get too distro-specific. When I went to Ubuntu, that book was about to meet the trash.

there's actually a fc3 specific book - wow, that thing will have a shelf-life of about 6 months! i'd have though a rhel3 book would be better.

personally i've always stuck to usenet, forums, faqs, manpages, howtos and wikis.

books just get out-of-date too quickly, especially with a development os like fedora.

There are quite a few RHE3/Fedora combo books out there too.
