Yep. RSN. Evi said that she heard that it at the bindery this week, so we
should see it any day now

from fatbrain:


This major revision of the best-selling and single most comprehensive
guide to UNIX system administration is ideal as both an introductory
tutorial for those new to system administration and a day-to-day reference
for "power administrators." Practical and hands-on in approach, it covers
every aspect of system administration — from basic topics to UNIX
esoterica — and provides explicit instructions for dealing with the six
most popular versions of UNIX.

Covers topics such as: 

The Filesystem
Controlling Processes
Serial Devices
Periodic Processes
Syslog and Log Files
Configuring the Kernel
TCP/IP and Routing
The Domain Name System
The Network File System
Sharing System Files
The Internet
Printing and Imaging
Disk Space Management

and it pops right off			--Seen on EFNet IRC
