Editorial Reviews

Help Net Security Magazine
After having read various heavy titles on Red Hat Linux I can honestly say that this is a great publication. Both new and intermediate Linux users will get the most out of the book. The author did an amazing job of keeping everything very easy to follow and did not overcrowd the book with some advanced topics not adequate for new users. It's pretty simple really - you want to know a lot on Red Hat Linux? Get this book, today.
