    loudly resents

  a Linux Documentation Project

    of the least selling book
        by the same name

      the Linux System Administrators' Guide 0.6.1
          just when you thought your system was safe

        starring Super User as Mr. Root

    introducing Lasu as Luser

      special effects by Don Knuth and Leslie Lamport

  music by Crash and Burn

    coming soon to an http://www.iki.fi/liw/linux/sag/ near you

Yes, it's that time of the year again, when Lasu thinks he's an
author! The new version features a conversion to DocBook (instead of
LaTeX), with lots of exciting formatting and spelling bugs for readers
to report, and Debian binary packages! Get your copy today, while the
supplies last! Two for the price of one! No system crash is complete
without the SAG!

The files are:

  sysadmin-guide-0.6.1.tar.gz   source code
  sysadmin-guide-0.6.1-html.tar.gz  HTML
  sysadmin-guide-0.6.1.ps.gz    Postscript

Most people will probably only need to download the PS version.
It is all you need if you have a PS printer. (Beware, though: I haven't
tried printing this. Waste of dead trees to test anything.)

No text or DVI version is available, I do not have the time to produce
one. Don't ask me to. (I'll make one for 1.0.)

The SAG home page is still at <URL:http://www.iki.fi/liw/linux/sag/>.
All the files are there, soon even an unpacked, browsable version of
the HTML version.

As usual, feedback is more than welcome.

I plan to to call the next version 1.0. It'll follow the grand tradition
of version 1.0 being _almost_ useful, but still crashing your system. :)
