Thanks for the great question. There are a lot of good textbooks that can help you learn more about security. One I would recommend would be Guide to Network Defense and Countermeasures. It is published by Thomson Course Technology, ISBN: 0-619-13124-1. Besides that I would recommend you learn Linux. There are lots of distributions of Linux you can run from CD or from VMWare. Check out this link, as they have a great list with many distributions.
