Since Linux Mint is a customized Ubuntu, you can search for any Ubuntu amin book.
Can anyone recommend a good Linux sys admin book? I am thinking of something comparable to The UNIX System Administration book by Evi Nemeth. I used OpenBSD for many years but I am now using Linux Mint 16, on an Acer Aspire V5.
I need to know how to get and run dump and restore (backups), learn bash (used pdksh) and how to format drives.
