Here, revised and updated by Linux experts, is your complete handbook for setting up and managing a Linux network using the 2005 releases of Fedora Core and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This all-new third edition starts with the basics—network planning, Red Hat Linux installation, and system configuration. It provides step-by-step instructions on monitoring system maintenance, optimizing Internet services, connecting to Microsoft, Apple, or Novell networks, administering users and groups, managing security, and solving problems. Special sections cover configuring a database server, creating a VNC server, providing Web services, and much more. With information on upgrading, customizing, and troubleshooting, this guide provides the ready reference you need to keep your network working.
Learn to do all this and more with your Red Hat Linux network
Kurt Wall first touched a computer in 1980 when he learned FORTRAN on an IBM mainframe of forgotten vintage; things have improved since then. A professional technical writer by trade, a historian by training, and an all-around Linux guy by avocation, Kurt’s work history is diverse. These days, Kurt works in the Customer Engineering group at TimeSys Corporation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His primary responsibilities include building and maintaining TimeSys’s Developer Exchange and working with portal customers and users. He also fixes broken servers, writes documentation, and builds TimeSys software.
Kurt, who dislikes writing about himself in the third person, receives entirely too much e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It's a great book with very thorough descriptions of things that other books (e.g. RH 8 unleashed) gloss over or don't cover at all - NIS as an example. Read morePublished on November 18, 2003
As some of the other reviewers have said, this book is very watered down. The names of various utilities and how to install them from the command line & the graphical... Read morePublished on November 17, 2003
The book is terrific but I found a virus on the CD. I notified Mr. Kabir but it is the publisher's responsibility and they did not provide an email address for complaints. Read morePublished on October 3, 2003
I bought this book several months ago and have been using it nearly everyday. I am relatively new to Linux and thought that this book might be too advanced for me. Read morePublished on April 16, 2003 by Tony Ramirez
