Best RH7.2 text?

Best two I reckon:

Excellent Linux version of the best (IMHO) Unix Admin book:
(Focuses on 3 flavours:  Red Hat v7.2, SuSE v7.3, Debian v3.0)
  Linux Administration Handbook
  Prentice Hall;  Nemeth, Snyder, Hein

Also a very good generic-linux guide:
  Running Linux, 3rd Edition
  O'Reilly; Matt Welsh
  Aug 1999

Personally I don't rate most of the distribution specific books so highly.  e.g Using Red Hat Linux, Red Hat Linux Unleashed, etc.

Slightly OT, but I figure poweredge aficionados will be able to help me.

I've taken delivery of a PE1650 with RH7.2;  I'm not experienced with 
Linux, but have worked with *BSD before.   I've already noticed several 
subtle (and not so subtle) differences.

Can anyone recommend a good administration book that will let me get the 
most out of my box? (one that specifically focuses on RH7.2 would be optimal.)

thanks for the help.
