Linux Bible: Boot Up to Ubuntu, Fedora, KNOPPIX, Debian, openSUSE, and 11 Other Distributions, 2008 Edition
New features: Instead of just telling you about how the technology works, new "Bringing Linux In" sections describe how people have implemented Linux in the real world. New sections describe real-life examples, such as how:
- A Small office created an inexpensive Web, print, and file server
- A do-it-yourselfer combined Linux audio and video features to create a home multimedia center
- A school build a computer lab with free educational software
- A large corporation deployed thousands of Linux systems

Our DVD and CD will include the latest versions of at least the following Linux distributions: Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE, KNOPPIX, Gentoo, Slackware, Mandriva, Damn Small Linux, SLAX, BackTrack, GeeXbox, and others.
