It's difficult to find a networking book that covers the basics in comprehensive detail without weighing in at 1000 pages. But this one does a very good job...

Instead, it's more designed for someone who is interested in learning how to set up a full network and administer it much like a professional would. Hallberg covers everything from cabling on up to the actual network operating system. While the chapters on Windows 2000/2003 aren't designed to be comprehensive reference manuals, they are complete enough to get the fledging network administrator up and running.
