32BitsOnline: The Installation and Getting Started to Red Hat Linux 6.0 [Review]

If you’re purchasing The Installation and Getting Started
Guides for Red Hat Linux 6.0 to supplement your Red Hat
distribution you are likely to be disappointed. In fact, you’ll
likely be downright upset. Just don’t say I didn’t warn
you.

“Linux Press publishes The Installation and Getting Started
Guides for Red Hat Linux 6.0 as part of their Linux Resource
Series. The book consists of two separate guides originally
published by Red Hat under an open license that allows reproduction
and distribution. Two CD’s containing the Red Hat binary and source
packages are included with the book. At $36.95 this book is half
the retail cost of Red Hat 6.0, but many times more expensive than
the cost of Red Hat CD’s pressed by online merchants.”

“If you purchased Red Hat 6.0 in a retail box you already own
the Installation Guide and Getting Started Guide. Red Hat publishes
those manuals and includes them with their distribution. Those
manuals can be found both in print and in HTML format on the
“Official Red Hat Linux” CD. But, even if you bought one of the
zillions of Red Hat CD’s sold by third party distributors you still
have these manuals on the CD!”
