Reviews From Previous Edition

"Here is a book that will give you a helpful and hearty boost in the right direction along the path to creative computing independence...the O'Reilly publications are cream of the Linux reference publications."
--Rip Yarnall, CCPCUG, Nov 2002

"The first thing that impressed me was the way 'Learning Red Hat Linux' was written. It read more like a novel then a technical manual/book, and I found myself excited to see what was on the next page. The book is a quick get-you-started guide that explains what you need to know, then moves on and does not spend too much time dilly-dallying...Microsoft OS readers should NOT pickup up this book, it will make you want to format your OS and install Linux, it did for me!"--Ken Wilcox, Boise Software Developers Group, July 2002
