I was just at Borders today looking for it and didn't see it either. I'm looking forward to reading your book, Ross. Thanks for your time in writing this book to help us guru wannabes out.

Johnfon,

You can choose exam 101-DPKG or 101-RPM when you take the LPI exam 101 or other exams. I prefer Redhat(RPM) base exams.

For more information you can check my first post.

Hi Ross,

I appeared for the LPI 101 RPM exam. Unfortunately, I couldnít pass that exam. I searched all the documents and links on the net and what I had found I had posted on my first post. but, still not satisfied with that martial expect one or two. I am re planning to set again for both exams (101,102) and plan to use IBM study tutorials. Does IBM cover every thing? I have seen your books tableís contents on amazon.com. I am thinking to buy this book also. http://www.examcram2.com/title/0789731274#

Here, I am confused about study martial. As I have found some links and documents some cover some of the points (like installation, etc) and some does not cover with full details. And I don't want to take chance again. As I planning to buy your book. Is it available in INDIA? If not then, can I read online? Can download .PDF file and HTML document? Becíz now I am looking for perfect martial to pass these exams.

Also, can u tell us Whatís on the CD-ROM? I have seen there are some Exam Prep Questions at the end of the each chapter. what is that exactly? is it only 1 question with thw multiple answer or it's cover some technical senario?

Please help me to clear all doubts. looking forword to your answer.

hitesh_linux: I purchased the book yesterday, and on the cdrom it comes with a full .PDF version of the book. I'm pretty impressed with the book so far, although I have only read up to midway through the second chapter. So far it is very easy to read if you have a linux background as I do.

Sorry Hitesh. Out of respect for Mr Brunson and his written property I can't send you a copy of the .pdf version.

Mike,

I appreciate your standing firm about international copyright laws.

Hitesh, the book is available in almost every store and website that deals with books, it's even discounted for overseas, why take a chance on being seen as a pirate, just get a copy of it for yourself. Someone else (ziox) also asked for a .pdf of the book, that would be theft, you get the .pdf as a companion to the book, not as a replacement for the book.

The book is available in the entire Que/Pearson distribution channel, including India and Egypt, my publisher tells me. You should have access to it, if not, let me know and we'll see what we can do.

Ross
