Yowie: a Linux administration guide for mere mortals. As they used to say, "What a concept!"
Steve Shah writes to the millions of people who are familiar with Windows (and perhaps NT and/or 2000) but not with *nix. (He's even provided a 16-page blueprint section comparing how to perform common tasks in Linux and Windows 2000.)
The explanations aren't just simple: They provide plenty of much-needed context. Shah covers everything from installation through advanced networking -- including four detailed chapters on real-world TCP/IP networking, security and all.
This Second Edition is thoroughly updated for Red Hat 7 (included on CD) as well as other new Linux technologies, such as PAM, the latest versions of GNOME, KDE, and Apache; the new File Hierarchy Standard and Linux Standard Base distribution. It's an outstanding resource for new Linux sysadmins.(Bill Camarda)
