About the Author

Christopher Negus has been working with Unix systems, the Internet, and (most recently) Linux systems for more than two decades. During that time, Chris 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 Enterprise Linux, Fedora, and other Linux systems.
Chris is the author of all editions of what started out as the Red Hat Linux Bible, which because of the name changes of Red Hat’s Linux projects has evolved into the book you are holding. Most recently, Chris co-authored multiple books in the Linux Toolbox series: Fedora Linux Toolbox, Ubuntu Linux Toolbox, Mac OS X UNIX Toolbox, SUSE Linux Toolbox, and BSD UNIX Toolbox (Wiley Publishing). Besides that, Chris authored the Linux Bible 2009 Edition and co-wrote the Fedora Bible 2010 Edition, CentOS Bible, Linux Troubleshooting Bible, and Linux Toys II for Wiley Publishing. Chris also authored Live Linux CDs and co-authored the Official Damn Small Linux Book, as part of the Negus Software Solutions Series.
Today, Chris works as a Linux instructor for Red Hat, Inc. and has achieved certification as a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) and Red Hat Certified Examiner (RHCX). At home, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife, Sheree, and his boys, Caleb and Seth. His hobbies include soccer, singing, and exercising with Sheree.

Eric Foster-Johnson is a veteran programmer who works daily with Linux, Mac OS X, Unix, Windows and other operating systems. By day, he writes enterprise Grails and Java software for ObjectPartners, a Minnesota consulting firm. He has authored and co-authored a number of Linux and Unix titles, including the Fedora Bible 2010 Edition, Red Hat RPM Guide, Teach Yourself Linux, Teach Yourself Unix, and Perl Modules.

UPDATE: I PREVIOUSLY RATED THIS BOOK 2 BUT UPDATED IT TO 3. THE BOOK HAS A LOT OF INFO, THE ADVANCED STUFF LACKS DETAIL BUT STILL IS PROVING USEFUL. NO ONE BOOK IS GOING TO GIVE ME EVERYTHING I NEED TO LEARN THIS STUFF. I FOUND SOLUTIONS ELSEWHERE TO MY PROBLEMS I DESCRIBE BELOW AND I GOT MY NETWORK RUNNING.

I ALSO GOT A SAMBA SERVER WORKING, BUT SEVERAL TYPOS AND MISLEADING/CONFUSING EXAMPLES AND EXPLANATIONS CAUSED MORE WORK THAN WAS NECESSARY. FOR EXAMPLE ON P. 652 THE BOOK GIVES:

# mount -t cifs -o credentials=/etc/samba/creds.smbpub //toys/chris

THAT IS WRONG, IT NEEDS TO BE:

# mount -t cifs -o credentials=/etc/samba/creds.smbpub //toys/chris /mnt/toys

ON P. 651, IT IS ASSUMED THE EXAMPLES ARE BASED ON A CONFIGURATION USING ENCRYPTED PASSWORDS BUT THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE ONLY WORKS FOR PLAIN-TEXT PASSWORDS, AND THE BOOK FAILS TO MENTION THAT:

smb://chris:a72mg@toys/chris

I FIND AS I WORK THROUGH THE BOOK THAT THE SECTION ON IPTABLES IS INSUFFICIENT FOR ME AND THE BOOK RELIES HEAVILY IN THE LATER CHAPTERS ON IPTABLES.

HERE IS MY ORIGINAL REVIEW:

I am new to linux and to working with networks. I worked through most of the chapters up to 15 where I am now stuck trying to setup a linux box as a router for my LAN. Most of the book up to this point shows how to use the GUI which is OK, but way more content then I need - I found chapters 2 (linux install) and 4 (linux commands) and the linux installation discs to be most helpful. But with my limited linux and network experience I am finding the book to be incomplete as the book progresses.
