Review:

Corel's version of Linux aims to be as friendly as possible, so many of its new features will be particularly appealing to beginners. Corel Linux OS Starter Kit comes complete with Corel Linux and WordPerfect 8 on CD-ROM and provides all you need to know about installing and configuring this operating system.

The book warms up with a comparison of Linux, Windows, and Mac OS, and looks at the features that make this version stand out from the crowd. Corel Linux is designed to be easy to install, so the chapter on this is relatively short, though it's supported by screen shots and a troubleshooting section.

The main part of the book is divided into four easily digestible, well-structured sections--so you can skip many of the more technical areas and return when you feel ready. Once you have Corel Linux up and running, you're introduced to KDE (K Desktop Environment), Corel's File Manager, the Control Center, and Internet-connection setup. The third section examines directory structures, user accounts, and disk and file management, and serves up a healthy discussion of Corel's graphical-administration tools. Part 4 delves more deeply into system administration and covers shells, text editors, and hardware-related issues. You find out how to set up a TCP/IP network, plus you get overviews on DNS and Web services using Apache. Creating Web pages using WordPerfect rounds the lesson off. Appendices on kernel compilation and a compendium of shell commands provide the finale. --Dave Mitchell, Amazon.co.uk
