Editorial Reviews

Bill Carmada
Year after year, Patrick Volkerding's Slackware remains one of the most popular distributions of Linux in the world-and one of the best. In Linux Configuration & Installation, 4th Edition, Volkerding and two colleagues walk you step-by-step through getting Slackware running perfectly. You also get a complete, 2 CD-ROM Slackware 3.5 distribution, including the full Netscape Communicator Web client and a ton of Linux tools for programming, networking, editing, and goofing around.

The book is every bit as authoritative as you'd hope. There's especially thorough coverage of getting your PC ready for Linux. You'll find specific help with each step of the installation process. There's excellent coverage of one of the trickiest aspects: configuring X Windows. (Many Linux books skip this-hey, GUIs aren't a passing fad!)

You'll configure Slackware for networking and the Internet; get it running on a notebook PC; handle the ins and outs of CD-ROM configuration; handle basic sysadmin tasks, and more. All that's missing is a PC.
