Chapter 14 - Working Securely Across a Network
Chapter 15 - Managing X Windows
Chapter 16 - Managing Remote Servers with VNC
There are also two Appendixes:
A - RAID Concepts
B - Server Log Files
My favorite parts were Chapter 7 and Chapter 11. For DBA's, it is very powerfull to understand how to write shell scripts and automate them. Also, Chapters 12 and 13 are great references for a DBA who has to implement ASM and RAC on Linux.
My Linux admin has also used these chapters to look at some OS configuration issues with RAC and ASM as well as querying disks with oracleasm (for ASMLIB).
Definitely a great resource that has clear and concise steps to follow to get things up and running. No fluff here.
Unlike other ready-made UNIX scripts for Oracle DBAs, this book teaches you to write your own script (Chapter 7).
It is nice to see implementing RAC on Linux and Appendix on VNC.
I think Problem/Solution with "How it Works" approch is what makes this book a valuable TO-THE-POINT material for Oracle DBAs.
Please bring these types of books for Unix. and other dedicated topics like
Export/import recipies, Migration recipies etc
