Overview

Linux Configuration and Installation Fourth Edition covers how to set up and effectively use Linux. Updated with Slackware Linux 3.5 on two CD-ROMs, the major features of the book include an in-depth section on how to set up the X Window System for Linux for your PC hardware, one of the most difficult tasks under Linux.

The expanded Fourth Edition supports more hardware configurations, explains more issues with laptops, covers a lot more about the X Window System, and includes Netscape.

The third edition of this book was a runner up in the 12th Annual Computer Press Awards (1997).
