Part II: System Administration

Part II: System Administration

In this part of the book we show you how to set up your Linux system and its environment to do pretty important things such as printing and sharing files with other systems; we also show you how to take care of your system in other ways. If you have more than one person using the system, the material in this section is particularly important. It's also important if your distribution failed to get networking up and running, or if you want to run any of the servers in Part IV of the book.
