A completely updated and extended version of this highly regarded guide to the Linux OS for network and systems managers. This book complements the two other two key Linux titles that we have published - Kofler 2e is the general guide for beginners, and Beck (3e) is for kernelhackers. This book sits between the two. It is aimed at system administrators and contains a wealth of information about running a system or network under the Linux OS. The book is divided into two sections for ease of use and shows how a Linux system might be configured to be used by a wide range of different users. the first section describes the Linux operating system in detail, covering basic system configuration and administration, whilst the second section covers Linux networking and Internet connectivity. This new edition is fully updated to reflect the latest versions of the commercial Linux applications, and the latest kernel release (2.4) which is expected to be released in January 2000. The first edition of the book has sold over 12000cc in its first year and has received excellent reviews on Amazon - they suggest that the only reason that it is not regarded as a classic is the slightly stilted translation, which we will be addressing in this edition.
