So, how exactly do you do it in Linux? Do you remember? Did you ever know? Not to worry. Carla Schroder’s compiled more than 350 essential Linux tasks into the step-by-step Linux Cookbook, an instant classic for every sysadmin and power user.
Here’s how to install a program for easy uninstall. Patch a kernel. Find a user’s UID. Manage runlevels. Host multiple domains with Apache. Set file ownership. Unmount a removable disk. Create a bootable CD. Add Windows XP to a multiboot system. Build a dedicated CUPS print server. Set disk quotas. Verify backups. Edit XF86Config. Remotely authenticate via public keys.
