Your Official Red Hat Linux Enterprise Guide to Networking and System Administration

They guide you through upgrading and customizing the new kernel, administering users and groups, and more.

All-new sections cover the latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux software, unique Red Hat optimization instructions for network services and the Apache Web server, and significant updates to the Bluecurve graphical interface, customization tools, LDAP, and the Postfix mail server.
