You mean like the man pages? You'll have to learn to be much more specific with your questions if you want helpful answers.

General administration, networking, special services (Apache, SSH, Samba, Tomcat, NFS, ...), storage, database, ...? Or day-to-day usage? There are a lot of administration fields out there, and documents useful for one type can be completely useless for another.

Again, you'll have to be more specific. You didn't even tell us what kind of documentation you need. How-Tos? Tutorials? Command references? Technical documentation? Tailored for a specific distribution (who usually provide a lot of docs on the respective web pages) or generalized?

Various guides for CentOS 5
Guides for RHEL
Documentation for Debian
And the same for SLES

As you see, there's a wealth of free documentation out there, you'll just have to look for it. IMO, the most important ability of any administrator worth that title is that they can look up information themselves, and ask specific questions if they don't quite get it.
