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 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 four books in the Linux Toolbox series: Fedora Linux Toolbox, Ubuntu Linux Toolbox, SUSE Linux Toolbox, and BSD UNIX Toolbox (Wiley Publishing).
Before that, Chris authored Linux Bible 2008 Edition and co-wrote Linux Troubleshooting Bible and Linux Toys II for Wiley Publishing. For Prentice Hall, Chris authored Live Linux CDs and co-authored the Official Damn Small Linux Book, as part of the Negus Live Linux Series.

I refer to this book as well as my Red Hat Linux 8 book, even though I have upgraded to Fedora 10.0 via download. It has great pointers for finding my way around the Fedora installation. I like the capability to log into either the Gnome Desktop or KDE. Setting up Linux is somewhat more involved than setting up MS Windows, but that is the price you pay for a better operating system.

The book was an easy read. It's explanitive enough, without going down to a basic level. The way it's layed out is very good -- not only can you read it straight through for a thorough understanding of the operating system, but also it's structure makes it great as a reference tool as well.

I'm very pleased with the quality of the content as well as the author's ability to show the parallels and differences between the two distributions.

I'd recommend this to any fellow RH Linux admins.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book when it first came out. When I pay $50.00 for a book, I expect it to be accurate; not riddled with mistakes like having dots (.) where they shouldn't be in config files or not there when they should be or wrong port numbers for CUPS setup. I've been trying to set up a DNS server for the past 2 days but chapter 25 is a [...] mystery as the named.conf and db zone files make no sense whatsoever. [...]
