I'd recommend a general and specific book. I have one at home that I really like and will update this later with the name.

If you are using Brocade switches then Building SANs with Brocade Fibre Channel Switches.
This is a very comprehensive book on building SANs with Brocade specific information.

If you are using McData
http://www.mcdata.com/downloads/tpub/pmanual/6064_Planning_Manual_42.pdf
and they have some other good documents on their site as well. But this is really more of a manual for this specific switch, but it this is what your using then it is a must read.

A good place to start is www.storagesearch.com. From there I'd check out the technical document section for each of the switch manufactures, as a rule they allways have very good documents that help from a general perspective as well has product specific.

Jess, when you talk about a subnet for a SAN, are you looking at doing iSCSI to centralized storage.  I'm not sure I understand what you would like to do.

The Essential Guide to Storage Area Networks by John Vacca is the one l like best for a general start to finish complete book.
