An indispensable working resource for IT professionals moving to Linux-based network systems
This new edition of Linda and Al McKinnon's book satisfies a long-standing need among IT professionals for a comprehensive guide to installing and administering Linux-topics usually covered in a more superficial manner as parts of larger Linux references. In addition to providing complete step-by-step installation instructions, this fast-paced guide shows readers how to perform all essential administrative tasks, including creating users and passwords, managing files and directories, and customizing the environment. Readers also learn how to make the most of Linux Shells and utilities, use the vi editor, and much more.
Responding to the ongoing needs of IT professionals for current and reliable information on the latest technologies, Wiley Computer Publishing introduces the Gearhead Press titles. These books, written by accomplished trainers in their respective fields, focus on real-world examples and case studies to give readers the best information on leading topics.
The Gearhead Press titles are characterized by two imprints: In the Trenches and Point to Point-both series include fast-paced books written by fellow IT professionals who have been there and done that.
In the Trenches books introduce technologies, guide readers to proficiency, and serve as practical, hands-on references after the initial tasks are accomplished. The Point to Point titles invite readers to join an IT team at a model company and implement technologies in real-world environments-demonstrating actual problems and solutions.

From the Back Cover:

An indispensable working resource for IT professionals moving to Linux-based network systems

More and more companies are now using Linux as their server operating system of choice. That's because the costs are lower, there's a greater amount of flexibility, and the code is much more reliable. As a result, there is a bigger demand for IT professionals who are able to install and administer Linux for everything from networking a department to connecting servers for a Web site. This comprehensive guide offers a detailed look at everything you need to know about working with this open source operating system. It bridges the gap between your prior experience on Windows NT/2000-, NetWare-, and Unix-based networks and Linux. In this new edition, Linda and Al McKinnon take you step by step through the process of installing and administering the latest version of the Linux 2.4 kernel, as well as all previous versions and distributions.

In addition to providing detailed installation instructions, this fast-paced guide shows you how to:
* Create users and passwords
* Manage files and directories
* Customize the environment
* Make the most of Linux shells and utilities
* Use the vi editor
