Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
The Fedora Project has been busy, and the fruits of their labor have just arrived: the state-of-the-art Fedora Core 3. Chris Negus has been equally busy updating his market-leading Fedora/Red Hat Bible. Nearly a quarter million users and sysadmins have depended on this book over the years. Get it, and you’ll see why.

The RHL Bibles stand out for their focus on real-world tasks, and for their breadth. Inside these pages is all you need to find and run applications, set up a network, connect to the Internet, provide email and other services -- even burn CDs and play networked games. (You’ll also find the entire Fedora Core Linux 3 distro on DVD. All binaries, and all source code.)

Negus begins from the user’s point of view, covering the slick Fedora desktop, both KDE and GNOME (and of course, the command line); the Linux file system; text editors and other system tools; Internet and web applications, games, and more.

Next, he turns to administration, including Fedora’s web-based tools. There’s detailed coverage of setting up networks and servers, including Apache 2.x, email with sendmail or postfix; Samba file/print sharing; DHCP and NIS; MySQL; wireless networking; even Mac OS X integration. There’s even a chapter on Security Enhanced Linux -- installed by default in FC3, so it’s something you need to understand.

New and revamped coverage ranges from Fedora’s new multimedia framework for playing music and movies, to improved discussions of Apache web server configuration and LDAP address books. The new content strengthens a book that’s already as solid and proven as they come. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only

During that time, Chris has worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories, UNIX System Laboratories, and Novell, helping to develop the UNIX operating system. Features from many of the UNIX projects Chris worked on at AT&T have found their way into Red Hat, Fedora, and other Linux systems.

Most recently, Chris wrote the book Linux Bible 2005 Edition, and co-authored Linux Troubleshooting Bible and Linux Toys for Wiley Publishing. During the past few years, Chris has written several books on UNIX and the Internet, including Internet Explorer 4 Bible and Netscape Plug-Ins For Dummies for Wiley Publishing.
