Books "that explain how it all works, from the Unix point of view rather than GUIs":

Advanced Mac OS X Programming

Mac OS X Internals: The Book

For up-to-date advanced Unix issues regarding Leopard you should also bookmark websites such as Unixjunkie Blog

For some useful network commands see:

Text* Snippets: Example ipfw ruleset [osx] [mac] [ipfw] [firewall] [ruleset]

To add users in Leopard see:

How to: Add a user from the OS X command line, works with Leopard! - OS X Daily
