Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Now that SUSE is part of Novell, many North American Linux users are discovering the power of SUSE Linux for the first time. They’ll benefit from a comprehensive guide that gets into all of SUSE 9.x’s nooks, crannies, quirks, and advantages. SUSE Linux 9 Bible is that guide -- and, as a bonus, it comes with SUSE Linux 9.1 Professional on DVD.

To begin with, here’s all you need to know about installation: from partitioning to boot options, changing runlevels to configuring hardware. Once you’re running, the authors walk you through all the command-line basics you’ll need (relax, GNOME and KDE are discussed later). You’ll find detailed introductions to files and filesystems; bootup; configuration with YaST; the X Window System; software package installation, text editing and manipulation; and a whole lot more.

Nearly half the book is set aside to cover SUSE in network and Internet environments. You’ll walk through configuring and troubleshooting IP (and even integrating with an old Novell IPX network -- now, that’s legacy).You’ll set up Apache web services, the mail server of your choice (Postfix, Qpopper, and/or Cyrus, but not sendmail); Samba file and print services; DHCP, DNS, BIND, NFS, FTP, firewalls, LDAP, even Squid web proxies.

The book concludes with four chapters on integrating SUSE into enterprise environments: everything from storage and clusters to kernel management. The “enterprise” section includes detailed introductions to both SUSE Linux Standard Server and SUSE Linux OpenExchange Server (SLOX), SUSE’s powerful email/groupware system. Whatever SUSE you’re running, though, this book will help you run it better and more effectively. Bill Camarda, from the March 2005 Read Only

Meet the Author

Justin Davies has been a Linux user since the age of 15, after getting frustrated at the (lack of) features in DOS. After University, he became a technical consultant at SUSE Linux, where he became very interested in Linux on non-Intel architecture. After a stint as a Unix administrator post-SUSE, he joined the world of the value-added reseller and now works for SCC as an enterprise solutions architect, helping organizations realize that Linux is a viable business solution.

After working as a teacher of mathematics and as deputy head of an independent school in London, Roger Whittaker discovered Linux in 1996 and became increasingly interested (some would say obsessed). When SUSE Linux opened its U.K. office in 1999, he changed careers and worked as a technical and training consultant until early 2004, when he moved to a position in London as a Linux consultant at CSF, a leading supplier of enterprise information technology solutions. He is a Council member of UKUUG, the U.K.’s Unix and Open Systems user group.

William von Hagen has been a Unix system administrator for over 20 years and a Linux fanatic since the early 1990s. He has worked as a systems programmer, system administrator, writer, application developer, programmer, drummer, and content manager. Bill has written books on such topics as Linux filesystems, Red Hat Linux, GCC, SGML, Mac OS X, and hacking the TiVo. He has written numerous articles on Linux, Unix, and open source topics for publications including Linux Magazine, Linux Format, and Mac Format. An avid computer collector specializing in workstations, he owns more than 200 computer systems.
