Who Should Read This Book:
The last part of the title of this book reads “A Beginner’s Guide,” and this is mostly apt. But what the title should say is, “A Beginner to Linux Server Administration Guide,” because we do make a few assumptions about you, the reader. (However, we jolly well couldn’t use that title because it’s such a mouthful and isn’t sexy enough.) We assume that you are already familiar with Microsoft Windows servers (or other operating systems) at a “power user” level or better. We assume that you are familiar with the terms (and some concepts) used in relation to small- to medium-sized networks of computers. Any experience with bigger networks or advanced Windows technologies will allow you to get more from the book but isn’t required.
We make these assumptions because we did not want to write a guide for dummies. There are already enough books on the market that tell you what to click without telling you why; this book is not meant to be among those ranks.
In addition to your Windows background, we assume you’re interested in having more information about the topics we discuss than just the material we have written. After all, we spend only 15 to 35 pages on some topics that have entire books devoted to them! For this reason, we have scattered pointers to other resources throughout the chapters. We urge you to take advantage of these recommendations.
We believe that seasoned Linux system administrators can also benefit from this book because it can serve as a quick how-to cookbook on various topics that might not be some seasoned readers’ strong points. We understand that system administrators generally have aspects of system administration that they like or loath a lot. For example, making backups is not one of our favorite aspects of system administration, and this is reflected in the half a page we’ve dedicated to backups.
