Today's open-source SUSE Linux software has evolved to the point where you can harness it for home or office and for desktops, networks, or across an enterprise. The latest edition of this bestselling Bible provides all the step-by-step instruction, techniques, and resources you need to install, configure, operate, and secure openSUSE 11.0 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. This is the only SUSE reference you'll need to get up and running—and stay that way!

  • Master SUSE basics, including filesystems, partitioning, and logging
  • Launch YaST, the SUSE installation and administration program
  • Tap the command line for text manipulation or advanced networking
  • Set up major network services such as Web sites or file and print servers
  • Use SUSE in an enterprise, including for storage area networks and virtualization
  • Configure firewalls, set up for wireless, and work with third-party hardware and software

About the Authors

After working as a teacher of Mathematics and as Deputy Head of an independent school in London, Roger Whittaker discovered Linux in 1996 and became increasingly interested (some would say obsessed). When SUSE Linux opened its UK office in 1999, he changed careers and worked as a technical and training consultant until early in 2004. He now works for Novell supporting Linux installations for large customers. He is Newsletter Editor for UKUUG, the UK’s Unix and Open Systems user group.

Justin Davies has been a Linux user since the age of 15. After University, he joined SUSE Linux as a Technical Consultant where he specialized in Linux on non-Intel architecture. He then spent time working with value-added resellers in Europe to define their open source strategy and go-to-market plans around Linux. He is now the founder and CTO of Ninetyten, a social networking consultancy based in London, where he is still providing solutions based on open source software.
