Networking Personal Computers with TCP/IP Review

By Harry Brar

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Networking Personal Computers with TCP/IP:

I bought this book from a discount computer book store. The contents seemed misleading. I did not find the book usefull at all. I used my copy for just onew day. It did not deal with anything current. It is high time they came out with a new edition which deals with current operating systems and Linux. I wish O'reilly gave me credit towards a different book.
