The book in your hands is the result of my learnings inside and outside my work and problem solving experience of the past 15 years. I wanted to present my work in Linux System Administration in the form of something unique. Something which not only will keep the user engaged, but make her knowledgeable as well. After much thought I chose to present this
information in the form of conversation about Linux System Administration. The content of this book goes along the line of open ended story which never ends. This non-ending story facilitates me to write the topics on the subject in the way I like.
The book has been arranged in very small chapters so that if the reader has even 15 minutes at her pursuant, one chapter can be finished. However that’s not the hard rule. Sometimes I had to go beyond the limit in order not to break the rhythm of the work.
I decided to write the content of the book in the order which I thought was appropriate for the reader’s journey to her learning. I’ve tried my best to make the book easy for the starters into the world of Linux and entertaining for the seasonal system administrators.
The book can not be considered as an exhaustive encyclopedia of Linux System Administration, but most of the problems faced will be found in the book here and there. Not all the possible commands have been included in my work. But the ones which are used most and which a System Administrator should be aware of have been included.
Since technology moves so fast that waiting on writing the book may become obsolete, so I decided to handover the chapters as I keep writing these.
