Question Books on Linux

Not totally new to Linux. Have done distro installs before. At this point, I'm looking for a way out of the MS lock down I've been in. Looking for a good beginner/intermediate book. One that will cover things such as server installs as well as things like X-Windows/SAMBA installs from CLI. What I am looking to do is to install a file/server and mail system that is accessible from a Windows or OS X desktop.

i have not really decided as of yet. I am familiar with Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS. Have not used them enough to know the real differences though.

Thanks for the help.Smilie

Slightly off topic here, but have you considered FreeBSD for your needs?

IMHO as a server OS it's hard to beat - has one of the best documentation handbooks & help forums around, i love it......

easy install and completely customisable through the ports / packages / source system. it'll do what you need.

have a look and see what you think.... even if you decide it's not for you, i doubt you'll regret looking.
