Textbook As they progress through the book, readers will learn to: partition a hard disk and optimize swap space options; create Linux boot and rescue disks; install and configure Linux on SCSI and IDE drives, or via an NFS connection; configure video settings, as well as local or remote printing; use RPMs to upgrade and install applications; upgrade a Linux kernel; download a kernel source file from the Internet; configure basic and crucial kernel options; modify LILO to boot from a new kernel; and more. The book's blend of real-world exercises and quizzes (with answers) plus helpful notes, warnings, and workarounds conveys insights the authors have gleaned from their experiences "in the trenches" as system administrators, professional trainers and consultants. Additional technical information and value-added resources are available to readers at the publisher's Web site.
From the Publisher
Linux has emerged as a credible competitor to Windows and UNIX as the infrastructure for mission-critical applications requiring a robust network that operates at peak performance. Its acceptance has been fastest in the Web server market, but other industries, such as financial services, are seriously evaluating Linux, and many companies have already invested in it.
