Since Red Hat published its last one (9th) release (Red Hat Linux 9) in 2003, they decided not to provide free technical support & product certification any more, and fully turned to the development of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL for short). This made some Red Hat rebuilders (open-source Enterprise Editions, such as White Box Enterprise Linux, Tao Linux, X/OS Linux, Scientific Linux) were born at the right moment. The most active one is CentOS (short for Community Enterprise Operating System).
As the first comprehensive and authoritative guide to the currently most popular and rapidly growing server OS – CentOS Linux, CentOS Bible published by Wiley Publishing covers almost the every topic for a Linux novice or a veteran who wants to master this increasingly popular Linux distribution in all directions.
After reading this book, you will know how to install and configure CentOS; how to work in the GNOME & KDE desktop environments; how to use the Linux shell, file system and text editor; how to configure CUPS printers, Samba for file, printer sharing and other features using GUI tools, etc.
