Harold Davis, Joe Merlino, Kate WrightsonISBN: 032121918X;
You may just be figuring out what programmers and die-hard open-source fans have known for years: You're not a slave to Windows! There is an alternative: Red Hat Linux! With its Gnome desktop and GUI, Red Hat Linux 9 now represents a real OS option for home users, and this handy Visual QuickPro Guide is the best way to tap all of its power quickly. The best-selling author of the last edition of this popular guide-- Harold Davis --uses the same easy visual approach here. By following the step-by-step, task-based instructions outlined in these pages, you'll be able to go straight to work with Linux as you learn how to navigate and configure the Gnome desktop, work with its native (and non-native) apps, use the command line, set up network and Web servers, and more. You'll also find loads of information--concisely and clearly presented--about all that's new in Linux today: a refined installation process, an updated windows-based Gnome desktop, usability enhancements, and more.
