For general information, its hard to beat the RedHat Linux Bible.
For a quick reference, check out O'Reilly's Linux Pocket Guide.
And for a nice samba reference, check out Samba-3 By Example.

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.

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books just get out-of-date too quickly, especially with a development os like fedora.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