4.0 out of 5 stars A little warning, January 15, 2001
This review is from: Red Hat Linux 7 Unleashed with CDROM (Paperback)
This book is as good as the previous versions of Linux Unleashed. Maybe a little better since it is only concentrating on the RH versions. Gives quick introductory to a lot of configurations. I think this is helpfull because at least you can make it work without digging through sometimes Illegible README and INSTALL documentation. Sometimes I use the information from the book to try and understand what the author of the README pages is talking about. The basic configurations for Apache, Samba and Networking are there (NIS is there also but didn't try it). Once you get this setup going you can tweak it and see whether it did what you wanted or it crashed. You get a baseline working system though. One little tid-bit of warning. I tried to use the disks provided with the book to upgrade a system and it stalled 3-times in a row. I put in a RH installation disk from RH and the upgrade went fine. So there may be a few kinks on the disks which are provided with this book. I have used the book supplied disks to install individual rpm packages and they seem to work fine.
