Must Have Book For Any Administrator

Any network or security administrator that has been around for awhile has their personal "toolbox" of go-to utilities and applications that they use for isolating and troubleshooting problems or just for maintenance and upkeep. Knoppix should definitely be in every administrator's bag of tricks.

The compact disc that comes with the book includes a bootable version of Knoppix along with useful tools and utilities to help you perform an array of tasks. Knoppix is as versatile as it is powerful and the "100 Industrial-Strength Tips & Tools" in this book will help you to understand and apply both the versatility and power of this great tool.

Just by booting a computer using the Knoppix CD you can perform a diverse range of tasks including setting up an emergency router, auditing network security, checking the system for root kits, resizing hard drive partitions, restoring deleted or corruped data and more. For Windows systems in particular, there is a tip to use Knoppix to safely download patches on a vulnerable machine and then reboot into Windows to apply the patch offline.

In the limited space I have, I can't really do the book justice. if you are an administrator, you need this book. Go get it.

Excellent Book

This book would be great for a class room, but does not work so good if you are trying to learn on your own unless you have a good reference book. When ever the author brings up new OOP logic, or teaches new C++ library functions he does a poor job explaining them, instead he tells you in what page he will go over the topic in more detail, that makes the book a little hard to read since he tends to do that 2-3 times per page.
I would recommend this book only for programmers with previous C/C++ experience, or advanced programers with some prior OOP experience.
