Unix toolbox - from 0’reilly, has a drill on the cover. It covers the utilitys
installed on nix

Unix System Administration Handbook, AKA the red book (I think it might of
changed colors for the third edition???)

The guy is not a moron. He’s a diplomat unwilling to destandardize the network.
I can understand that, but really he tried to do everything possible to change
my mind and that just made me that much more persistent. His job is, of course,
to help customer, but thanks to his cable monopoly he doesn’t have to worry
about losing my business. The other company that had viable competition quickly
found out that I wouldn’t setlle for “an upgrade is scheduled to be completed
next week” BS.

That book is, of course, Unix Powertools. It is a great book that supplements
Essential Systems Administration as well as everything else :-). Essential
should be read first.

Both are from O’Reilly and heavily used on my bookshelf. You can preview them at
www.oreilly.com.

Re: AT&T support logs… LOL do NOT argue with Leo!

Thanks Leo - from what I was reading he appeared to be speaking from a manual
and not from his own intelligence. Albeit that I am not nearly as proficient as
he in admin., I did get what you were asking for the first time.
