Beginning SUSE Linux: From Novice to Professional is designed for the newcomer to Linux. It aims to guide you through numerous practical topics relevant to effective operation of this popular operating system.

The book begins by discussing the background of Linux and open source software, then proceeds to guide you through the SUSE installation process. You’ll learn how to use the basic functions, and modify the look and feel according to your tastes. This book is packed with troubleshooting tips, so even the most cautious beginner will feel right at home.

Next, the book covers the daily usage tasks that are enjoyable and interesting to learn. You’ll learn how to configure your system to listen to audio CDs and MP3s, burn CDs, watch movies, connect to the Internet, and reproduce common Windows tasks.

In the process, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding about the core of Linux. You’ll learn how to master the command-line prompt, secure your system, and perform administration tasks like scheduling backups and managing users.

A full version of the SUSE operating system is supplied for free on the included DVD, so you’ll have everything you need to get a Linux system up and running.
