5simply the best / almost
By Slavisa Nesic
I compared this book with several others: Beginning Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu the Complete Reference, Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux, Professinal Ubuntu Server Administration, How to do everything ubuntu, Official Ubuntu book, Ubuntu Unleashed, and several others.

This one is THE BEST.

Serious problem: only up to Ubuntu 8.04, but suitable 99% for Ubuntu 9.04.

It is pitty the author does not manage to follow versions.

5Good book for new Ubuntu (GNU/Linux) networks administrators
By Jorge Román
This author made easy the installation of a network with an Ubuntu server and Windows clients. The book is appropriate for beginners in networking administration, but not for absolute dummies, requires a minimum knowledge about computers. The topics were more than I and expected and will be very handy for future reference.
