Extra Content
Because limitations exist on how big a book can be, for each new release of the Red Hat Fedora Linux Bible, the author must cut some sections to add room for new information. Some of the information deleted from the book, however, is still quite valid and useful, so the author has put it in this archive. For the Red Hat Fedora Linux 3 Bible, the author added new coverage of SELinux, managing removable media, and Mozilla browser (Firefox) and email (Thunderbird) client applications. To make room, the author removed several sections covering software that was no longer part of the mainstream Fedora distribution. Those sections have been added to this archive. We have also put content here that was dropped from previous Red Hat Linux Bible editions, but still might be useful or interesting to some users. The files in this archive are stored in Microsoft Word Format; you will need a viewer capable of viewing Microsoft Word files to view the files. To see the topics available for download, as well as a few FAQs, review the Read Me First file.
