Summary: Outstanding reference book for Linux!
Comment: When I first saw this book I was sceptical of how good it would be. The paper is not especially good quality and the price is cheap .... But don't let looks deceive you - 'Linux Complete' is excellent!
The sheer weight of material covered in this book is impressive on its own merit. But for such an inexpensive price it is amazing. For twenty bucks you get walk-throughs on installing Red Hat Linux, setting up Apache, setting up Samba, working with Gnome, handling multimedia, and all the basics you'll need to do a whole host of other tasks. Plus the topic index is very comprehensive.
Linux Complete is better than other computer reference books that are twice the price. It is easy to read, and is useful to beginners and intermediate users. It offers clear and accurate information and good step-by-step instructions. It doesn't cover the various problems that can occur when installing or running Linux software especially well, but considering the wide content covered that's understandable.
This book has saved me many hours of frustration and I have no reservations in recommending it to other users!
