Summary: Install software into usr/local/ or /opt? Answers are here!
Comment: This Book is definitely about customizing a linux systems and the concepts behind. its more a "how to" thing like : how and where should i install the "sun java SDK" or how to use (install, configure) other important software like "open shh" or apache. and on these subject the authors do a fairly good job on explaining and guiding through this process. the word tuning in the title may be give you eventually wrong expectations, because its not about tuning in the meaning of "how can i squeeze out the last bit of performance of the system" or something similar.

Summary: NOT tuning
Comment: I was looking for a good resource on Linux system tuning. This book does NOT fill the bill. The word "tuning" doesn't even appear in the index!

If you need help with installation options that go beyond the basic defaults, you'll find this book helpful.

If you want to tune your Linux system for maximum performance, look elsewhere.
