IBM RedBook "Netfinity and SuSE Linux integration guide"

Shot of the cover. Click to enlarge (1 KB) In October 1999, I have been invited by IBM to write on a so-called RedBook about the installation of SuSE Linux on different Servers of the Netfinity class. The final version is available from the IBM RedBooks Web Site.

The book has been updated by Justin Davies (SuSE UK) for SuSE Linux 7.0 in November, 2000 and is now titled "SuSE Linux integration guide for IBM e-server for xSeries and Netfinity". It can be read online as a HTML version here, the PDF is available online from here and as a local copy from from here (6.8 MB)

My first edition of this Redbook (covering SuSE Linux 6.2 and a little bit of 6.3) can be downloaded as a PDF file from here (3 MB).

Thanks to Ralph de Rijke and Pjotr Prins, there is a review of the book in the eup E-zine:
