Linux Newbie Administrator Guide

Linux Newbie Administrator Guide

A complete reference for new Linux users who wish to set up and administer their own Linux home computer, workstation and/or their home or small office network. The answers are meant to be simple, with just sufficient detail, and always supported with a readily usable example. The work is still in progress, but we hope the Guide can be helpful already.


Like everyone, we were Linux newbies when we started playing with Linux in the summer of 1998. Throughout these years we have tried many distributions (Debian, Redhat/Fedora, Mandriva, Slackware, and Zenwalk). The solutions within this guide were written with mostly RedHat/Fedora and Mandriva in mind, so the solutions might not be directly applicable to other Linux distributions (although most of them are). Hope this helps; we try to be as practical as possible. Of course, we provide no warranty whatsoever. If you spotted a bad error or would like to contribute a part on a topic of your choice, we would like to hear from you.
