Too much of the book is for installation,
By A Customer
This review is from: Linux For Dummies (Paperback)
Ok I know that installing linux can be a bit of a problem but really this book has too much of it devoted to getting linux installed and all the possibilities of dual boot etc.
I had already installed linux on a dual boot system when I ordered this book and it was very straight forward.
There is a section on how to find things in the various environments and a good section on basic commands and passwording etc., but no real help if things don't work right 1st time and you'll find more help visiting websites than in the book.
That said if you want an all-in-one package to get you started and don't want to (or cannot) download the iso files of linux this book will get you moving in the right direction.
