Learning Red Hat Linux
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: September 1999
Pages: 392

New users are flocking to Linux literally by the millions. Yet most of these new users draw from Microsoft Windows as their primary computing experience; for them an operating system from the UNIX family is an unfamiliar experience. In Learning Red Hat Linux, Bill McCarty has written a book aimed specifically at this new audience.

Learning Red Hat Linux will guide any new user of Linux through the installing and use of the Red Hat® version of the free operating system that is shaking up the commercial world of software. It demystifies Linux in terms familiar to Windows users and gives readers only what they need to start being successful users of Linux.

Built around the popular Red Hat distribution of Linux, Learning Red Hat Linux takes the reader step by step through the process of installing and setting up a Red Hat Linux system, and provides a thorough but gentle introduction to the basics of using Red Hat Linux.

Because the book is written specifically for the enclosed CD, the reader needs nothing else to get started with this exciting new operating system.

Learning Red Hat Linux Review

Comments about oreilly Learning Red Hat Linux:

I have been reading learning red hat Linux.(by Bill McCarty) This person knows how to get certain points across that are difficult to understand. If the the point is difficult he will relate it so that it is very easy to understand. I have been reading other books on operating system and networking (Micrsoft)it is like they donot want you to understand their product. I have been very impressed with this book and the operating system and are hoping to get involed and learn this system. One little comment about this book certain short forms would be nice if they were in full context in brackets eg. page 205

IP number. I know that it is the designated address for your computer or number but what is the full version of IP number. It is easier when you are learning this.
