Powerful, slick, and backed by both a thriving community and a highly respected software company, SUSE Linux offers the best of many worlds. Chris Brown's SUSE Linux gives you what you need most to master it: hands-on practice.
Brown's "labs" walk you through system and server administration; desktop and laptop SUSE; package management; network services; security; and more. Best of all, he never strands you after you've tried one example: his "What About..." sections anticipate what you need to know next.
So, once you've learned how to play media, Brown helps you deal with proprietary formats like WMV. Once you've learned how to configure wireless networks; Brown offers solutions for cards without Linux drivers. Once you've learned to create logical volumes, Brown shows how to enlarge them. Once you've learned how to access your desktop remotely, Brown helps you cope with firewalls. Simply an immensely useful book. Bill Camarda, from the November 2006 Read Only
