The 30 exercises that follow allow you to test your knowledge with SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 at an advanced level. As with those that preceded, the vast majority of these exercises can be done from the console, but you might find it helpful to have at least one client connected to the server. Once again, the ideal client for most purposes is the Novell Linux Desktop.

Step-by-step solutions to these exercises appear in Chapter 4, "Solutions to Exercises." Table 3.1 lists the objectives and prerequisites from the courses used to prepare for the Novell CLE (Certified Linux Engineer) 9 that this section covers and which exercise each of those tasks can be found in. Where possible, every objective that could have an exercise associated with it is represented here at least once.
