In my opinion, the main strength of this book is the compilation of all the instructions you need to set up basic components of a network (web server, mail server, samba etc). With this book, a novice can possibly get a (fairly secured network up and running in just a few days). Mr Khabir also stress on security issues pertaining to each part of the setup.All in all, this book provides a good starting point for a novice in linux-based network setup. Highly recommended.

My copy of Kabir's Red Hat Linux 7 Server book is dogeared and worn, because as a reference manual, its been invaluable to me. Sure, it has its inconsistencies in places, but overall, its accurate.I'm not sure I would trust its indepth knowledge on the 2.5 kernel in Red Hat Linux 8, because RHL8 didn't come with a 2.5 kernel. Besides that, its quite possibly the best of the "Red Hat Linux" books on the market.

Mohammed Kabir presents one of the best written books I havefound on the subject. I have ready many of his other articlesand books and found them to be equally informative, providingclear and concise summaries of the most practical informationrequired to perform everyday maintenance and installations.

It helped me when I needed to acquire a quick understanding of operating system and poured me how reference manual.
