RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 Administration Unleashed

James Pyles writes "Normally, I see "Unleashed" books with titles Like Fedora Core 6 Unleashed or OpenSUSE 10.2 Unleashed, not something like Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Administration Unleashed. An "administration" Unleashed book? Very interesting...and written by a single (and very highly qualified) author to boot. A peek at the Intro assured me that this book was written as much for Linux administration in general as for RHEL 5 administration. Fox said her focus was to help admins who oversee from one to a thousand systems, so I started to think "big".

I departed from my usual pattern in reviewing a book and first took a look at Fox's site www.linuxheadquarters.com. Actually, there's only one page on the site for the RHEL 5 Admin Book, but I wanted to see what else the author was up to. Turns out that she and her husband Brent (who "has served as a programming consultant, Linux courseware developers, Linux trainer, Linux developer, and Linux technical account manager" according to the site's About page) are the site owners and use it to provide a variety of tutorial information regarding Linux. The page specifically about the book has most of the usual information plus download files for the book available as a tarball or zip file.
So what about the book?"
