Recommended book for CentOS for beginners

Postby aqualion » 2010/01/26 16:06:04

The Where To Find Answers thread recommends the book "Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Bible" by Christopher Negus. Wouldn't "The Definitive Guide to CentOS" by Peter Membrey be a better book for CentOS for a beginner to linux and web servers?

Welcome to the CentOS fora.

Wouldn't "The Definitive Guide to CentOS" by Peter Membrey be a better book for CentOS for a beginner to linux and web servers?

Quite possibly but I haven't read it, so am unable to comment. Are you recommending it?

I suspect that when the list was drawn up, that book had not been published.

I have not read the book. I have no experience regarding linux or web servers. After making the decision to use and learn CentOS (based upon recommendations from individuals at the Fedora forums) I wanted to know which book was best suited for beginners (and in my case, dummies.) All opinions are wanted.
