Linux in a Nutshell is a nice book that fills that need, but it probably
has much more detail than you are wishing for.  Still, it's handy to have
at your side when you need it.  

Published by O'Reilly, of course. Not that I'm biased or anything, just
that O'Reilly sent three of them for FREE to SCALUG to give away.  Funny,
I think only two found their way to being door prizes...
