Format: Paperback
Ever wanted to know ANYTHING about Linux??? This is for you! It covers any and all stages from Beginner to Pro. Everything from Games to Servers. The only problem is...it is so huge that when you search for something, you often end up reading about a million other things too! But hey, thats one way to learn!!!

Bought this book as a replacement to Collings' "Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration". Very happy I did. "Red Hat Linux 9 Bible" is a far superior book. It has excellent breadth and appropriate detail on key subject areas without getting too far down into the weeds.
"Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration" has minimal detail in what I would view as critical areas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Red Hat is the best Documented version of Linux 24 April 2005
By Lloyd Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is about Red Hat 9, with the Red Hat 9 CDs included. Red Hat 9 is no longer supported by Red Hat. They have moved on to Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise. But Red Hat 9 is still supported by 3rd parties, and is probably the best of the Linux versions for older computers.

I have a 1998 Gateway Solo laptop. Red Hat 9 is the only version of Linux which allows everything on it to work. The sound system on this laptop does not work with Fedora or any other version of Linux. But it is completely compatable with Red Hat 9.

If you are looking at 3rd party software, normally you will find they support Red Hat 7 thru 9, Fedora, and Debian.

If you install a fedora system, much of the book can be used as a reference.

If you get this book/Cd set, I would also suggest getting "Running Linux" 4th edition by Welsh, Dalheimer, Dawson, and Kaufman. Published by O'Reilly. This book covers all versions of Linux and will compliment the Red Hat Bible.
