Unix AdvancedSite offer With Unix becoming more and more ubiquitous, Unix users are becoming more ubiquitous as well - and a growing number of them are ready to move beyond just using the open-source OS to actually administering it. Not wishing to disappoint, The Register Bookshop has got just the ticket for these budding Unix consultants.

Rather than just enumerate commands, Unix Advanced shows readers how to combine and synthesize those commands to take full advantage of Unix. The focus here is on advanced Unix security, networking, and system administration. In addition, the authors take a good, hard look at using the Xwindows system to harness Unix's power in the GUI world. By the end of this volume, users will be solving problems, administering systems, and running Xwindows competently - in short, tapping all of Unix's power.
