Review of 'Linux Cookbook'
TBR writes "This is a wonderfully useful sort of book; well-written, well-organised and well-worth seeking out. It's pitched at the reader who is still finding his or her Linux feet. Not quite complete beginner and not quite super-user or guru. As such it avoids the hand-holding guide to installation at one extreme and the how to navigate raw inodes at the other. It also tries to steer a path through the jungle of distributions, focusing on Red Hat and Debian (as representatives of RPM and APT based distributions), with occasional forays into Knoppix. However, other distros (such as SuSE and Slackware) also get mentioned to point out relevant differences."
