A multi-tasking OS with a visual, user-friendly interface, Linux has moved beyond its core of die-hard fans and into the mainstream. Red Hat Linux, the leading version of this open-source, Unix-based OS, lets you run both its own powerful productivity apps and versions of popular programs such as Netscape Navigator and Corel WordPerfect. With Red Hat Linux 6: Visual QuickPro Guide, you can go straight to work with Linux, as you learn it.
Red Hat Linux 6: VQP follows the same visual approach as the books in the immensely popular Visual QuickStart series--it features clear, jargon-free explanations and instructions, plenty of screenshots--but is aimed at intermediate to advanced readers. Author Harold Davis teaches you what you need to know to get the most out of Red Hat Linux: how to navigate and configure the Gnome desktop, work with its native (and non-native) apps, use the command line, and set up network and Web servers.
