Top 10 books to read and gain a deeper understanding of how networking works (or doesn't).

I am in a position at work where I'm supposed to know all about our domain and the users and policies and permissions and DHCP and, and, and...

I've learned ALOT by the seat-of-my-pants but - since I love to read - I'd like to know what you all would suggest as "good to have" books.

I'd love to see you all answer the "if I could only have ONE book ..." question.

I'll bump points as replys  come in.

If you are running Windows Server 2003, I'd recommend the "Learning Windows Server 2003" (ISBN 0596101236).  It is an O'Reilly book and is a great resource for all of the functions and features in Windows Server 2003.  I have been reading through it to get up to speed more on what 2003 can do, including the new R2 release.  Not many books (that are currently available in the stores) cover the R2 release.

This is the list we have in our library, its good reference and the last two books are specific to our site.  It was the list I sent to my company as a wish list last November
