Helpful installation information for those installing their own systems – Devotes a full chapter to the subject (Ch. 2).

• Abundant pedagogical aids in each chapter:

·      Each chapter has quiz questions, exercises, and at least one project.

·      All quiz questions will be answered in the instructors guide.

·      Exercises and projects do not generally have one concise and specific

answer and therefore are not *answered* in the instructor's guide, but

are discussed in such a way as to help the instructor know what a

"correct" solution would look like.

·         Instructors are free to assign some, all, or none of any of the

      quiz questions, exercises, and/or projects.

Hundreds of command and code examples throughout.

•  Approximately 50 diagrams throughout.

FTP-able files - Code used in the text will be made available on a Prentice Hall website.
