Part II is geared toward the administration of features common to all Linux systems, not just servers. Some of these chapters are really tutorials that help you use the system effectively,while others will delve into some of the more powerful concepts that set Linux (and UNIX in general) apart from other systems with which you may be familiar.
In Part III, you’ll study all the services needed to run an Internet site. This includes the Domain Name System (DNS), the File Transfer Protocol (FTP), the Web, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) Mail, Post Office Protocol (POP) Mail, and Secure Shell (SSH).
Part IV goes in the opposite direction from Part III. Rather than studying services for everyone on the Internet, it examines services offered only to people on your internal network, such as the Network File System (NFS), the Network Information Service (NIS), and Samb

Offering full coverage of Linux in one source, this book documents the most commonly needed topics for new and experienced Linux users and programmers.
This book is an outgrowth of the popularity of Linux. Its original version, UNIX for Programmers and Users, written by Graham and updated in subsequent editions by King has been widely used in classroom settings and is popular with professionals new to UNIX or UNIX programming. The increasing popularity of Linux created a demand for a Linux version of such a book, especially in classrooms where Linux is emerging as the platform of choice for computer science students.
Graham wrote the original version in response to the need for course material for university students as well as professional programmers, taking great care to include many different types of users in his target audience. He created a book that was helpful to everyone from a complete beginner to an experienced programmer and allowed instructors to teach a variety of courses. The widespread use of Linux has led to the same need for Linux users and instructors.

This book consists of eighteen chapters that illustrate different aspects of Linux system administration. The chapters are grouped into four parts: The Basics; Managing Users, Processes, and Files; Communications and Networking; and System Optimization and Improvement. If you’re new to system administration, read Part 1 first—it covers the basics. Beyond that, you can read chapters in any order. Each chapter stands on its own. For example, if you are specifically interested in performance tuning, you could jump directly to Chapter 16.

This resource is for those who have switched or will be switching to Linux; it avoids tech-talk, but focuses on subjects appealing to the average Joe–installation, playing CD, the Internet, games, printing, and more.
How to Use This Book
It is possible, of course, to use this book as a mere reference text that you only consult when you have a problem to solve, but that would negate the basic concept behind the design of the book. Instead, I recommend that you first go through the entire book chapter by chapter, doing the projects along the way. This will give you a much broader understanding of how things are done (and of how you can get things done), and it will reduce the chance for anxiety, confusion, and, worse yet, mistakes.
Of course, it is best to read this book and complete its projects when you are relaxed and have time to spare. Nothing makes things go wrong more than doing things in a rush. And keep in mind that Linux and the projects in this book are fun, not just challenging work exercises. The whole point of the Linux world, in my opinion, is that it offers all kinds of fun. So, go ahead and enjoy it.

Delving into how the Linux operating system is constructed and how it works, this book takes the point of view of an administrator experienced in Windows architecture. Covered are the installation and configuration of a network file server as well as user management and file and directory sharing. In addition, information is provided on implementing sample scenarios such as connecting Windows and Linux workstations to a file server or replacing an existing Windows domain controller with a Linux server. Other topics include system backup, scripting, setting up permissions, Windows CIFS, and troubleshooting.
