Lars Wirzenius loudly resents a Linux Documentation Project production 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! -x-X-x- Table of contents: * Introduction * Overview of a Linux System * Overview of the Directory Tree * Using Disks and Other Storage Media * Allocating disk space * Memory Management * Boots And Shutdowns * init * Logging In And Out * Managing user accounts * Backups * Keeping Time * Measuring Holes * Glossary (DRAFT) * References * Index 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. :)
