The Review:
From different comments I had read about this book, most people thought it was a guide on installing Linux. The Linux Network Administrators Guide is an excellent book on giving any windows network administrator the information needed to set up the different network services after the Linux OS is installed.

The only thing I wasn't totally happy about was the chapter on Sendmail. I personally think Postfix is a much better and easier to use mail server. Other than that I give this book two thumbs up.

The Linux Network Administrator's Guide was originally a volunteer effort at the Linux Documentation Project. It remains on of the most highly regarded books on Linux networking.
