The darling of the open-source movement, Linux offers up a tinkerer's dream: the ability to configure, manipulate, and (potentially) improve absolutely everything about the operating system. Red Hat Linux Unleashed recognizes the central desire of Linux adopters--control over just about everything (including the source code). The book devotes copious pages to step-by-step instructions to accompany the Red Hat installation CD-ROM.
Red Hat Linux Unleashed explains some troubleshooting techniques, mostly by detailing prevention. The authors want readers to understand the processes underlying Linux in order to make intelligent decisions about system maintenance. A good portion of the book deals with network administration, including chapters on STMP & POP, FTP, and security issues. For those looking to host Web servers, the specifics of Apache, Domain Name Systems (DNS), Network Information Service (NIS) client/server database systems, and Network File System (NFS) software all receive ample coverage.
While Red Hat Linux Unleashed does try to be all things to all people, the authors acknowledge the impossibility of this mandate. They sprinkle URLs throughout the book, encouraging readers to visit other locations for more in-depth coverage. A strong overall resource, Red Hat Linux Unleashed is a good place to start for Linux installation. --Jennifer Buckendorff
