Best Linux reference
I am 'the tech guy' in a small company, about 75 staff, and gradually I've been replacing our antique fleet of windows 95/NT4 servers with Linux servers. I wish I had this book two years ago when I started making the changes. It covers a lot of everyday system administrator jobs- mail, web, DNS servers, user account management, package management and system upgrades, printing- great chapters on printing- and a lot of great stuff on running mixed Windows/Linux networks. The chapters on running an email server & managing spam/viruses are great. The book gives commands for both Red Hat and Debian systems. Some other nice things are several good backup and restore methods and making customized installa disks. This is my #1 Linux reference book.

I won't rehash what's in the book, the BN review does that. I have read many books on the Linux OS, and this one by far is my favorite. You get the impression that Ms. Schroder thought of every question you could ask and provided references to other books as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
