Every Linux on the planet is GNU/Linux (as far as I knowSmilie) This particular distribution seems to be Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (.el5 in the output of uname -a). As for the books, there are plenty of various books taking the subject of Linux administration. I would suggest first going for some basic book covering Linux fundamentals, like managing files, working with the shell etc. After that you can move to something more specific, maybe something about administering RHEL5, so you can practice on your server. It is important to know that Linux comes in many different distributions, so books covering one might be not very accurate for another.

optisa - determine which variant instruction set is optimal to use SYNOPSIS
optisa instruction_set... DESCRIPTION
optisa prints which instruction_set out of the ones specified in the command will perform best on this machine. In this case, ``best'' is defined by the order in which instruction set names are returned by isalist(1). Possible values for instruction_set are given in isalist(5). ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 One of the instruction_set values you specified is printed by this command. 1 There is no output; that is, this machine cannot use any instruction_set that you specified with the optisa command. SEE ALSO
isalist(1), uname(1), attributes(5), isalist(5) NOTES
optisa is preferable to uname -p or uname -m (see uname(1)) in determining which of several binary versions of a given program should be used on the given machine. SunOS 5.10 25 Jul 1997 optisa(1)
