there is one more good book called "computer networks" by andrew tannenbaum.
this however has much theory about the networks. if you accompany that theory with hands on experience, the book can be a best teacher for u.

I agree with kingshag

Going to a computer show and picking up a couple of 400 mhz computers for 150$ each with monitor
would be good.  I personaly have a home network of 10 computers.  Unfortunatly I can not keep them fired up because it heats my house up too much.  I thought of leaving them on and opening up
a bakery.

These guys do have a point I wouldn't go to the extremes of 10 computers but actually working with netoworks is the best teacher But I still believe you should read up on it and your learning will increase by actually reading learning then putting into action.
