This book introduces the concepts and features of LINUX and explains how to install and configure the system. It describes the features and services of the Internet which have been instrumental in the rapid development and wide distribution of LINUX. It focuses on the LINUX graphical interface, its network capability and its extended tools. And it gives an overview of the wide range of shareware applications available for LINUX. The book is practical in style and includes many illustrations and examples.
Linux: Unleashing the Workstation in Your PC is a complete and highly detailed guide to Linux installation, configuration, administration, and networking. It will also introduce you to many of the available add-ons, applications, and tools, including the X-Window system, text editors, relational databases, typesetting systems, languages, compilers, and TCP/IP utilities. It describes a full installation and configuration from the popular Slackware 2.1.0 distribution on a 32-bit Intel system, but the discussion can be easily adapted to many other distributions by a knowledgeable user. The book assumes that the reader has a good degree of familiarity with computer systems, but it is well adapted to those who want to learn the details of Unix systems for the first time.
Author Stefan Strobel has coauthored a companion volume, Linux Universe: Installation and Configuration , a book/CD-ROM package which includes a full installable version of Linux 2.0 and a detailed installation guide for that version. Both Linux: Unleashing the Workstation in Your PC and Linux Universe: Installation and Configuration are available in a single package, The Complete Linux Kit.
Linux is free a 32-bit multitasking operating system for 32-bit Intel and other industry-standard processors that closely resembles Unix. It supports multiple users, TCP/IP networking, and much of the peripheral hardware found on today's systems. Originally written by Linus Torvalds, Linux is now the product of a global community of interested programmers and is licensed through the Free Software Foundation.
