With major developments of technology, this operating system is considered more efficient than Window Operating System. Linux Operating System is secure because of its firewall protection feature. The Linux Operating System has its own K-Office and having powerful internet, network capabilities as well in Linux we have many inbuilt servers like NFS, Samba server, Web server – Apache, mailing server- sendmail, Proxy server – Squid, DNS, System Administration for users and groups, DHCP Server, FTP, http, etc.

The concept and theory of each topic is followed by the theoretical explanation, some selfassessment questions, all practical questions and Configuring servers solutions are provided at the end of this book. Within practicals Linux Installation step-wise with wizard is provided. Since before understanding Linux Admin, one should have an idea about simple Linux Commands. Hence, efforts have been made to make the text easy to read and understand.
