Please try again later. Al Swanson Top Contributor: I was am a complete noob to Suse and linux in general. I'm very experienced when it comes to OS-level stuff and computers, but I needed a good overall book to get my suse install going. Well, this wasn't the book to get. If everything works perfectly on your install, you're good to go - and you wouldn't need this book anyway! If, however, your install hiccups, then this book won't help.
Like the install section, the rest of the book is basics only. Not much in the way of troubleshooting, either. I'm not saying it's not a good book. It may be perfect for the transition user, someone going from Win to linux and primarily interested in using desktop applications and doing simple admin tasks. Perhaps for that user segment, this is a five-star book. I wanted a bit more and for that, it doesn't deliver. An example is during the install section. There's no info on dual-booting a machine.
I don't want to speak for others, but I imagine that's a common install of linux. It's certainly what I wanted to do. No info was contained on how to do it, however. The install that is done in the book offers little in explanation of 'why' you would do things - just do them. Again, perhaps only a fault if you want something other than a vanilla single-boot machine installation. Lastly, the book references version Some things have changed although not enough to say the book needs updating.

I look forward to his next title. One person found this helpful. It was completely out of date - thus worthless. I assumed it was at least not like a 7 year old yellow pages: Buyer - Go Elsewhere.

This is really only an overview of Suse Linux. It did not answer questions I had for installation or repair or how to get applications working after the installation fails as it often did first time around in this Operating System. It did get me started allocating space, partitioning and help somewhat in the first overall installation.
However, even that was not completely as described and I am now at a point where I must seek elsewhere.
Not a happy position after the cost of this book. SUSE meets my needs and this book made this transition much more user friendly.
What is Kobo Super Points?
Got it brand new from Amazon via Redbrazil for unbelievable 2. Great, came as described and on time. Ever since Novell purchased SUSE Linux there has been a whirlwind of activity, press releases, and articles everywhere about what they intend to do with it and where SUSE will go from here. In this book the author guides the reader through the details of the community distribution. Only minimal computer literacy is assumed and the author walks you through everything from the installation through setting up email, printers, network cards, users, and anything else you might want to configure on your desktop.
The section on administration is well done and explains how to do things both from the command line and graphical interfaces. Other areas covered include graphics, audio, video, burning CDs and DVDs, installing and configuring on your laptop, package management, and network services including sharing files, remote access, configuring a web server, name resolution and everything else you would need to install and configure a small business server. According to Novell, SUSE is installed more than 7, times every day, an average of one installation every 12 seconds. This book will take you deep into the essential operating system components by presenting them in easy-to-learn modules.
From basic installation and configuration through advanced topics such as administration, security, and virtualization, this book captures the important details of how SUSE works--without the fluff that bogs down other books and web sites. Instead, readers get a concise task-based approach to using SUSE as both a desktop and server operating system. The modular, lab-based approach not only shows you how--but also explains why--and gives you the answers you need to get up and running with SUSE Linux.
