    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Book 9 Mar. 2006
    By Stephen E. French Sr. - Published on
    Format: Paperback
    Very detailed explanation of the operations of Fedora Core 4. Was able to get services running that I have had trouble with. Recommended the book to a class of students to buy for a reference library.
