Format: Paperback
This is a great book for beginners of Linux OS (Red Hat Version). The format is a simplified step by step howto on the basics of "using" the OS & system utilities. This book can shave months off the Linux learning curve. It does not have all the detailed answers, but can point you in the right direction of where to start looking in the "free" HOWTOS off the internet & cdroms (i.e. you can't find an answer if you don't know the question). Problems with other books are "too much or too little" info to get started. This book aims to give just the right amount of information. I believe there is NO one perfect book on Linux OR Unix period. The only problem I have with this book is that I wish it were published when I first started "Using Linux".

It's probably no the best book about Linux, and quite expensive when read its content, but if you are looking for a book from where get a quick answer to usual and simple questions (how mount a flopply, how change X windows server, using tar command .... ), that's your book.

Format: Paperback
This book is the absoloute must-have book for all Linux users, from Newbies to Gurus. Not just another Linux distribution CD-ROM with a book stuck on for good measure, this book explains, in the clearest possible language, almost every possible command, program, and the internal workings of the Linux O.S.. Written specifically for the RedHat 5.0 distribution, it is nevertheless a most usefull book for any Linux system, or for that matter most other Unix systems as well. As the owner of better than twenty books on Linux and other Unix systems, this is the one that stays on my desktop within quick reach.

Format: Paperback
If you are a new/intermediate user of Red Hat Linux this is a must have book. My favorite thing about this book is that it covers in simple step-by-step fashion many of the things you want to do with Linux. I keep this book with in arms reach of my systems as it servers as a great reference as well as a tutorial. It is not a "complete" reference, but then again a "complete" Linux reference could not have the detail this book has. The book is very focused on Red Hat Linux, and if that is not the distribution you are using, you might find that aspect would turn you off to this book.

Format: Paperback
I have mixed feelings about this publication. I have Red Linux 5.1 installed on my system, so much of the material outlined in the book was relevant to the questions I had about installation set-up and configuration. However, the book seemed to be missing detailed information on internet access configuration. The book had a couple of chapters dedicated to the topic but after following the text I could not get Linux to dial-up my ISP. So if the examples in the book don't work for your particular situation, you are out of luck.

Some sections, settting PPP connections for example, are incomplete with essential steps missing. In this example, when does one create the ppp-on-dialer script?
