Oracle and SUN Solaris 8 - Administrator's Guide is a book written by Paul Watters, and published by O'Reilly. The book is all about how to create and administer networks using Solaris 8. The book, published in January, is current even for Solaris 9, mostly because not many changes to the way Solaris works have been made in the new version of the OS.

No bad, but

It's not a bad book. I really think it was mostly geared for a
MS or Linux weenie (not that Linux == weenie) that scammed a Solaris job. Light on the difficult stuff, lots of basics.

About fluff: most O'Reilly books are good about fluff, but this several useless files included. For example, I know what /etc/services looks like, I don't need a copy "as an example" on paper.

I guess I'm just wating for O'Reilly's Advanced Solaris 8 book.
