Review:

Corel's version of Linux aims to be as friendly as possible so many of its new features will be of particular appeal to beginners. Corel Linux OS Starter Kit comes complete with Corel Linux and WordPerfect 8 on CD-ROM and provides all you need to know about installing, configuring and using this operating system.

The books warms up with a comparison of Linux, Windows and MacOS and looks at the features that make this version stand out from the crowd. Corel Linux is designed to be easy to install so the chapter on this is relatively short but is supported by screenshots and a troubleshooting section. The main part of the book is divided into four easily digestible sections and it's also very well structured as you can skip many of the more technical areas and return when you feel ready.

Once you have Corel Linux up and running you're introduced to KDE (K Desktop Environment), Corel's File Manager, the Control Centre and Internet connection set up. The third section looks at directory structures, user accounts, disk and file management and serves up a healthy portion on Corel's graphical administration tools. Part IV delves deeper into system administration and covers shells, text editors and hardware related issues. You're shown how to set up a TCP/IP network and this is complemented with overviews on DNS and Web Services using Apache. Creating Web pages using WordPerfect rounds the lesson off and appendices on kernel compilation and a compendium of shell commands provide the finale.--Dave Mitchell
