Comments about oreilly Linux Network Administrator's Guide, 3rd Edition:

In one way I was a little dissapointed with this book. Not that this book was well not very well written, but that I was beyond the level of most the material. If you are looking into starting down the Linux networking path this book can help you do just that. It helps you learn the basics as well as everyday task. The one thing I regret is that I did not get it sooner when I was first learning. If you already have set up DNS, mail, and know some about IPTABLES you may want to look for a different book. I do plan to keep my copy to loan to others that are getting started. Overall this is a good book, but it is not for advanced users.
