Description

By Chris Tyler

Published by O'Reilly Media (http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596526825/)

"Neither a "Starting Linux" book nor a dry reference manual, this book has a lot to offer to those coming to Fedora from other operating systems or distros."

Behdad Esfahbod, Fedora developer

This book will get you up to speed quickly on Fedora Linux, a securely-designed Linux distribution that includes a massive selection of free software packages. Fedora is hardened out-of-the-box, it's easy to install, and extensively customizable - and this book shows you how to make Fedora work for you.

Fedora Linux: A Complete Guide to Red Hat's Community Distribution will take you deep into essential Fedora tasks and activities by presenting them in easy-to-learn modules. From installation and configuration through advanced topics such as administration, security, and virtualization, this book captures the important details of how Fedora Core workswithout the fluff that bogs down other books and help/how-to web sites. Instead, you can learn from a concise task-based approach to using Fedora as both a desktop and server operating system.

In this book, you'll learn how to:

* Install Fedora and perform basic administrative tasks

* Configure the KDE and GNOME desktops

* Get power management working on your notebook computer and hop on a wired or wireless network

* Find, install, and update any of the thousands of packages available for Fedora

* Perform backups, increase reliability with RAID, and manage your disks with logical volumes

* Set up a server with file sharing, DNS, DHCP, email, a Web server, and more

* Work with Fedora's security features including SELinux, PAM, and Access Control Lists (ACLs)

Whether you are running the stable version of Fedora Core or bleeding-edge Rawhide releases, this book has something for every level of user. The modular, lab-based approach not only shows you how things work-but also explains whyand provides you with the answers you need to get up and running with Fedora Linux.

Chris Tyler is a computer consultant and a professor of computer studies at Seneca College in Toronto, Canada where he teaches courses on Linux and X Window System Administration. He has worked on systems ranging from embedded data converters to Multics mainframes.

3/5 stars

For Fedora Core 6

:
It desperately needs to be updated for the newest Fedora (Core 13 as of this writing), but I'll keep it on my Touch in case some things are the same between versions. Also, they should have told the version it is for BEFORE you buy it.
