Step by Step
doesn’t tell you how to install Linux since it is very straight forward but it gives youreal world mail, DNS, proxy, web, messaging etc… server installations andconfigurations.System administration is all the things that one has to do to keep a computer system in auseable shape. ItIncludes things like backing up files and restoring , installing new programs, creatingaccounts for users, making certain that the filesystem is not corrupted, and so on.There is no one official Linux distribution, so different people have different setups,and many peoplehave a setup they have built up themselves. This book is not targeted at any onedistribution, even thoughI use Red Hat Linux 8 and 9 the contents can be applied to any distribution.Many people have helped me with this book, directly or indirectly. I would like toespecially thank my own brother Dilan Kalpa De Silva, Luckshika Jayadeva for herexcellent type-setting, my ever loving mother, two sisters and my aunt MallikaVitharana.
