Learning Red Hat Linux Summary

Learning Red Hat Linux by Bill McCarty

Learning a Unix-style operating system can be a daunting task. Designed for beginners, this book includes a complete Linux system CD-ROM from Red Hat Software. Once it guides beginners through the process of installing and configuring this software, the book offers a thorough but gentle introduction to the basics of using Red Hat Linux. This edition has been upgraded to cover installation and configuration of Red Hat version 7.2, with improved sections on how to use the GNOME and KDE desktop environments, and how to use the Red Hat Package Manager (RPM). Highlights of the text include: how to prepare your system for installing Linux; how to install and configure Linux; how to install and configure the X Window system; how to use X and the GNOME and KDE desktop environments; how to obtain and set up Linux applications; how to set up a Linux system for networking, either on your local area network (LAN), or via a dialup connection to the Internet; how to install and configure Linux-based servers, including the Apache Web server and Samba for integrated file and print services with Windows-based networks; how to understand and write shell scripts to extend the power of Linux; how to install, upgrade, and remove packages using RPM.
