Every aspect of the software, (including OpenOffice and Ximian Evolution), were treated. The details and simplicity of this book makes it a desired tool for both beginners and experts alike. Advanced 'Red Hat' users would value the information it offered concerning how the Operating System copes with a multi-system environment. The same applies to all those who administer or maintain Linux-based servers.
This is one of the few books that used straightforward terms to unleash every fact about 'Red Hat Linux 8' Operating System. It is pleasurable to read, and covered both the Professional and Personal editions of the software. The flexibility options that the attached CD-ROM provides is wonderful. This is one valuable book which 'Red Hat Linux 8' users should go ahead and invest on. Both beginners and advanced users of the OS would find their respective niches in it.
the book has two disks of Red Hat Linux 8 and it was a breeze to install
It is Intermediate, not for Beginners. Double CD contains most of software you need but partitioning for dual-boot can be difficult.
This Book has Become OLD as Red Hat is very Good but not Free anymore and Fedora is the Red Hat Free Distro. I still have the Book but Use Fedora Now.
