5.0 out of 5 stars The one "must have" Linux book I've found
A good choice if you already know the basics of *NIX, and want to set up a Red Hat Linux server (also works for Mandrake Linux). Unlike many books, it avoids wasting too many pages on things like vi tutorials - there's enough coverage of the basics to get you started, but I wouldn't recommend it to a complete beginner.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing
After reading all the good reviews I decided to buy this book. I am new to linux and just wanted to get a god book to tell me everything about the basics of this OS.

This review is from: Red Hat Linux Bible (Paperback)
A good choice if you already know the basics of *NIX, and want to set up a Red Hat Linux server (also works for Mandrake Linux). Unlike many books, it avoids wasting too many pages on things like vi tutorials - there's enough coverage of the basics to get you started, but I wouldn't recommend it to a complete beginner.
Where it shines is in system administration and server set-up - it takes you from choosing an ethernet card and figuring out what IP addresses, to setting up a mail/news/apache/samba/etc. server. Each server type has its own chapter, doubtless some will need more detailed information than can be presented in this way, but as a "get-you-going-with the minimum of pain and fuss" book, it's great.

The book's content covers a wide range of subject but is not specific and the installation described in book does not follow the actual insatllation process. The book is more of a reference guide and does not porvide you with and step by step instructions and even if it does they do not resemble the actual softeware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book !, 10 Jan 2000
This review is from: Red Hat Linux Bible (Paperback)
This was the book I was looking for. I had earlier read the book "Learn Linux in 24h", and well it was really poor compared to this book. Easy to understand, and it covers ALOT! A must...
