Blueprints will illustrate key difference of administering Linux vs. NT, a very popular section from the first edition.

Learn to install and administer Linux--on an individual workstation or an entire network--with this comprehensive, in-depth reference. You'll find everything you need to get up and running with any Linux distribution, including the latest version of Red Hat(r). Updated to cover the new 2.4 kernel and complete with an expanded section on advanced networking, this book shows you how to install and configure Linux, set up Internet services, handle single host administration, and much more. Plus, you'll get 8 pages of blueprints illustrating the differences between Linux and Windows NT or Windows 2000.
