I have a 1998 Gateway Solo laptop. Red Hat 9 is the only version of Linux which allows everything on it to work. The sound system on this laptop does not work with Fedora or any other version of Linux. But it is completely compatable with Red Hat 9.
If you are looking at 3rd party software, normally you will find they support Red Hat 7 thru 9, Fedora, and Debian.
If you install a fedora system, much of the book can be used as a reference.
If you get this book/Cd set, I would also suggest getting "Running Linux" 4th edition by Welsh, Dalheimer, Dawson, and Kaufman. Published by O'Reilly. This book covers all versions of Linux and will compliment the Red Hat Bible.
+980 pages of information, the book was so simple to read I managed to complete it in 2 days.
Alot of other boks simply point to online references this book is what you require, you will be referring to it on daily basis, I think the best approach is to read the whole book first then go through it once again step by step chapter by chapter.
The most important aspects of securing the server the network setups, mysql apache and sendmail all covered as well as non bias information to other 3rd party applications the writer simply puts across his point of view and lets you decide from the option paths yo want to take.
Kudus to the writer simply the best buy.
