About Book

Book Description
  • Comprehensive, beginning-to-advanced coverage of Debian GNU/Linux, which boasts an estimated installed base of 1.75 million servers and a year-to-year growth rate of 25 percent
  • Debian GNU/Linux is free, supported by HP, and is often cited as the most stable and reliable Linux distribution-which makes it a great alternative for users put off by Red Hat's pricey Enterprise Linux and unsupported Fedora
  • Written by an active and widely recognized member of the Debian community and featuring a foreword by the Debian Project Leader
  • Features the basic distribution on one CD-ROM as well as a mini disk that allows users to explore Debian GNU/Linux without actually installing it

This book teaches you the commands, configuration setups, and best practices to use Debian productively on the desktop, Internet, and intranet servers.
