1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely frustrating 31 Aug 2002
By Carl R. Mousley - Published on
It seems as though this book was thrown together over a weekend. Errors and omissions make it frustrating to use in the extreme. I should have been warned by the text on the inside back page that says, "The CD-ROM ... contains a copy of Red Hat Linux 8.0...". It doesn't of course and the installation that does come - 7.2 seems incomplete. For example I was unable to load the Samba server off the disks and the text that dealt with the installation was completely inaccurate and unhelpfull.
This book is a waste of money - the official guide (downloadable free from Red Hat) is a better text and easier to read.
