Chris Negus on Fedora Core relies on Chris Negus' broad understanding of Linux and how to teach the uninitiated how to get the most out of the OS. Targeted toward the hobbyist or admin that is new to Linux, it provides a more focused approach than larger more comprehensive books on the market. The content is geared toward getting readers up and running as quickly as possible and then moves quickly into the most popular topics including popular applications for the web, productivity suites, and email; setting up a server (Apache, Samba, CUPS), and of course security. Topics include: Installation Configuration Shell Primer The Desktop Applications Administration/Servers Security The smaller trim size makes the book an ideal reference whether on the go with a laptop or as an admin working across locations.
