Summary: Installing Caldera and Red Hat
Comment: This book covers the intallation and configuration of Caldera Open Linux and Red Hat distros. The emphasis was on the GUI and practically no attention was paid to the CLI even though most work in Linux will be with command lines. It covers a lot of topics, but rarely goes into much depth. It is primarily for newcomers to Linux like myself who need advice on how to troubleshoot installations of Linux for the first time. If you already have Linux up and running or have gone passed the basic stage of learning anf familiarising yourself with Linux, then it won't be of much help.

Summary: Don't bother!
Comment: This book is best described as a perfect example of what book not to purchase to learn Linux. It does not cover any of the topics properly, and leaves you to be working out most of its contents yourself. The only good thing I have to say about this book is, you know when your on the right track, when you discover whats in the book is not correct, or complete.

Summary: Good book - perfect for my audience
Comment: I was looking for a book that would get me rolling with Linux, assuming I had a reasonable knowledge about computers, operating systems and networks. (I am a CNE and have extensive knowledge with Novell, NT, and Apple OS's - I've only dabbled with Unix). Even though I was using a different install package than the ones featured in the book, it was still very applicable. I referred to it frequently while installing and always found what I needed quickly and easily.

This is NOT an in-depth book on running Linux, it IS a good basic manual with the correct amount of detail for its intended use: installation and configuration.
