Comments about oreilly Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Administration:

As a general reference yes it assists with finding answers minimally. After reading the very very basic information in the book research is done on the internet and more detailed solutions are available to try. The content of the book basic information is okay but the Operating System has changes since the publication of this book that are not up to date with Red Hat Enterprise Server 6 current distros.
