Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent source of information for step-by-step configuration of Linux. It guides you through the exact configuration process, from start to finish, of most of the major areas and items of a Linux distribution.
What it DOESN'T do is assist you in your configuration, or where it does, the configuration parameters given aren't in enough detail.
For instance, if you're worried about installing Linux to dual-boot with a Windows 2000 installation, all it tells you is to do 'custom' and to make a new partition for your linux operating system -- nothing about the potential destruction of the Windows 2000 boot loader.
It's definitely an excellent book for beginners and home users, but not so perhaps for system administrators.

This book provides the latest software and a great explanation of how to use Red Hat. It is written with beginners in mind, but also tries to point out the new changes to the more experience users.

HASH(0x95b1a270) out of 5 stars Great book 14 Jan. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is probably one of the best books for a newbie (like me) to Linux. The author explains in a simple non-cryptic fashion and the book covers everything that you ought to know about Linux to start you off.
Thanks to the book, I now have a full-fledged personal server running in my office off an old PII machine.
Overall, an excellent book. I highly reccommend it to anyone who wishes to start off on Linux and knows nothing about it.

HASH(0x9437e318) out of 5 stars Wow! Amazing! 6 Mar. 2002
By Michael T. Yee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought [a] computer (new)...(733 Mhz Cyrix chip w/ 20 gig HD and 128 Mb RAM) and this Red Hat Linux Bible ready to explore Linux for the first time. As I installed the OS, I'm thinking, "This will never work." But, to my astonishment, I got my linux box on my LAN and started surfing the Internet at cable-modem speeds in less than an hour!
This amazing book contains three CDs and documents lots of free software. I'm particularly excited about the Apache web server and the MySQL server. It looks like the Perl, C, C++, and Python programming languages are here, too. I'll have to look for the Java compiler, the Tomcat JSP server, and the PHP server.
As for home use with Star Office? We'll just have to see. This is so cool!

HASH(0x95396bdc) out of 5 stars This is the one book you need! 8 April 2002
By Doug Akers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I started with Red Hat Linux about 2 years ago, but didn't have time to learn much at all. I bought this book the other day, and I already have it working on my windows network. Its actually doing most of the jobs my other servers were doing. I just saved myself a ton of money on software license fees. I highly recommend this book for anyone new to linux as well to the experienced linux pro. 10 Stars********** I also highly recommend SAMBA Essentials for Windows Administrators. ISBN: 0-13-040942-1

HASH(0x9458d78c) out of 5 stars It is a gem of a bible 31 Jan. 2002
By Srihari Mailvaganam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Linux has come of age. Red Hat 7.2 is the version that brings it to the masses. In 2000, I was strugling on loading Linux to my Notebook - most of the drivers were not recognized. There many agonizing days before it started to work - without modem support. And linux literature was disparate and difficult to come by.
Red Hat Version 7.2 makes things almost as easy as a Microsoft OS to newbies. And the book goes through the steps in extremely digestable formats. Red Hat support does not come along with the CDs - but this is not really necessary. The book covers the topics very well. And if you need to troubleshoot on areas not covered by the book, there are a wealth of info through google and deja.
Best wishes on your migration to Linux. It is a fun OS to use and the migration path is now, almost, painless.

HASH(0x94e0ee48) out of 5 stars Fantastic book! 25 Jan. 2002
By Richard Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been in IT (Novell, Microsoft, Cisco, Citrix) for many years and have been playing with Linux on a project by project basis. This book cleared up alot of the things that I didnt understand and made Linux a usable workstation platform for me. I am currently getting into some really high end firewalling solutions and webservers for a client and I will be using Linux and this book!!
