Online Auction Description

Linux for Non-Geeks, Book + CD

by Rickford Grant, Author
published by Nostarch Press

From the publisher:
A Hands-On, Project-Based, Take-It-Slow Guidebook
by Rickford Grant

This book is for any home user who has switched or is thinking of switching to Linux. Based on Red Hat's Fedora Core, Linux For Non-Geeks avoids geeky subjects like server and network setup and concentrates on the subjects of interest to the average home user: installation, the Internet, playing CDs and audio files, desktop customization, games, downloading software and fonts, USB storage devices, printing, and more. Readers with only basic experience with Windows or another Linux distribution will learn how to do everything on their Linux machine that they are used to doing with Windows. A complete installation of Fedora Core is included on two CD-ROMs.

About the Author

Rickford Grant has been a computer operating system maniac for over 20 years. From his earliest days with his Atari XL600 to his present Linux machines, he has been the guy at the other end of the computer help line for family, friends and colleagues. When not burning himself out in front of his monitor, or annoying his neighbors with his Nyckelharpa (Swedish keyed fiddle) playing, he spends his working hours as an Associate Professor at Toyama University of International Studies in Japan, where he teaches courses in English Language, Swedish Culture, and English-language-based computing. Rickford Grant's Linux for Non-Geeks website, which contains additional projects, how-to's, errata, and lots of other information about the book is available here.
