The SUSE LINUX Administration Guide provides background information about the way your SUSE LINUX operates. This book introduces Linux system administration basics such as file systems, kernels, boot processes, an Apache web server, and secure authentication.
The SUSE LINUX Administration Guide comprises five major categories:
Details about special installation types, updates, LVM, and RAID.
Configuration of the boot loader, X Window System, printer operation, and mobile computing with Linux.
Special characteristics of a SUSE LINUX system, details about the kernel, boot concepts, and init processes.
Integration in (heterogeneous) networks, configuring an Apache web server, file synchronization, and security aspects.
File Systems and Access Control Lists
The digital versions of the SUSE LINUX manuals are available in the directory /usr/share/doc/manuals.
