Sobell, Mark G.
This edition covering Fedora Core 5 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4 covers their upgraded security, shell script-writing, and other features. With some overlap with the author's previous books on Linux and UNIX, chapters include practical examples, tip and caution boxes, optional advanced sections, and review exercises. Appendices offer further details on regular expressions, the meaning of "free" software, the last Linux (2.6) kernel, plus troubleshooting resources and a glossary. The DVD-ROM contains the full Fedora Core 5. Limited time free access to an online edition is available. Programming experience is not required but programmers are among the intended audience along with students, home users, and system administrators.
