Summary: Got me going...
Comment: I started my server with this book and the man pages that it suggested helped a little. It does not have the heavier network admin information that you need once you get running. If you are trying to configure multiple nic's, sendmail, web hosting or any of the standard things, you need to get something else. But if you want to set up a basic network, this is the best starter book i have used.

Summary: Definitely for the beginner
Comment: This book was very easy to follow, but I didn't learn very much that wasn't already available in the Linux documentation.
When I got this book, I had already been using UNIX at work. I just needed some guidance in installing Linux the first time at home. This book proved to be too shallow for me.

Summary: Only the obvious copied and pasted
Comment: This book I found rather disappointing. It is DEFINITELY for the beginner. So much that most information is nearly copied from all the help information provided during the installation process itself.
If you are a beginner I would not recommend buying this book. Look for something else!!
