Hi folks. I just purchased my first iBook and I'm looking for some advice on reading materials

I have worked with AIX(IBM) and Linux as well as some tinkering with Free BSD. I have also done some very low level sys-admin chores on X.2. I've seen that O'Reily has several titles pertaining to OS X and its UNIX roots. I just want to learn how X.3 does stuff (system wise mainly) relative to linux and unix.

Any advice?
