Synopsis

If you're new to Linux, it can be a real challenge to find the right Linux book: they either cover the wrong distribution, or are too technical, or conversely, too superficial. The Linux Book offers the perfect balance: all the information you need to install, configure, maintain, and network a Linux system without having your intelligence insulted or wading through thousands of pages of unnecessary technical gibberish. Leading Linux expert David Elboth starts with a practical introduction to Linux concepts and installation, then helps you master every key concept and task associated with running Linux. You'll find coverage of Linux files, directories, and file systems; passwords and user access; running the X Window system; Linux processes; printing; tools; integrating DOS, Windows, and Macintosh systems; shell scripting; system commands, backup and restore, kernels, network communications, and more. The book also offers a chapter-length cost-benefit analysis for organizations considering Linux. For every beginning-to-intermediate-level Linux user or system administrator seeking a complete guide to Linux setup, installation, configuration, and administration.
