Covers tons of stuff. A little bit of everything. Enough to get you started in Linux.
Redhat centric (if this is negative).
Great book. It's the first book I read when trying to learn Linux. Although it is Redhat centric this book covers a lot of ground. This book has a little bit of everything. If you have never loaded linux, or have loaded it already and still have questions, this book is for you. I still to this day go back to this book, on certain things that I forget.
Here are some of the topics included in this book:
-- Install Linux in a server configuration
-- Configure GNOME,KDE,X-Windows,and more
--Understand single-host administration and manage users
-- Learn to use file systems,create partitions,and configure quota settings
-- Compile the Linux kernel and unpack source code
-- Set up Internet services and learn the mechanics of FTP
-- Provide intranet services including NFS,NIS,SAMBA,DHCP,and LPD
-- Get details on advanced networking with Linux—TCP/IP,packet filtering,cookbook firewalls,IP port forwarding,and much more
Lots of good reviews at Amazon and Barnes and Noble too.
