Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0782125069, Paperback)Everyone seems eager to give Linux a shakedown, so publishers have saturated the marketplace with books about installing and initially configuring the operating system. Most of them, however, give only cursory coverage to the software you can run under Linux. Linux Network Servers: 24 Seven does an outstanding job of explaining how to turn a machine running Linux 2.2 (it doesn't pay much attention to the differences among distributions) into a reliable, high-performance provider of network services. You'll learn how to install most any service you could want, including the Web, FTP, e-mail, DNS, printer sharing, and file sharing.
Though this book deals with powerful software, it doesn't assume too much Linux expertise. If you've installed Linux, gotten it to work properly, and played with it a bit, you'll follow along comfortably. The standard approach is an explanation of what a particular service is and which pieces of software implement it, and then a walk through the configuration of one of them. You'll find out what goes into the various configuration files (listing options, where appropriate) and about the behavior of key administration commands. This book will help you build a fire-and-forget network server on the Linux platform. --David Wall
