Yup... I have Oreilly and Associates "Running Linux" and I can definitely
recommend it as a general guide for maintaining a Linux box...especially
if you are using any version of Slackware Linux. Most of the examples in
the book appear to come from a Slackware distribution and as such it
should ease the learing curve.  For help on installation the best thing is
Matt Welsh's book "Installing Linux" which is also available from Oreilly
and Associates.  Also you might be able to get a somewhat older but still
useful version of Matt's book on the net.

Good Luck.....
