Order (or just read more about) Unix: The Complete Reference from Amazon.com
Well, of course it really isn't the "Complete Reference". Even at 1300 pages, you can't really do that, especially when you are trying to cover Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX. Nevertheless, this book makes a valiant effort, and at least briefly touches upon everything you probably need to know. This would probably be a good starting point for a Windows oriented person who suddenly finds themselves responsible for Unix machines.
A companion web site is not found where the book says it is, but can be found at https://www.osborne.com/programming_webdev/007211892X/007211892X_url.shtml
