great for beginners!

If you have no experience with web publishing or you have only created a web page with those wizards that don't use HTML this is definitely the book for you. It was a very easy read for me. I read this book in only 2 days. If you know anything about HTML I wouldn't really recommend this book because it will state what you already know. I considered myself a beginner but I was somewhat familiar with HTML and web publishing. To my surprise a lot of it I already knew. However, it still was very helpful to me. It talked about areas such as creating a web page that is friendly to all browsers...something I wouldn't have thought of without this book. It includes very useful URL's and has screen shots of examples of the things they are talking about. It also comes with a cd-rom that includes freeware and shareware stuff that I found very useful for myself. In one of the appendixes are very useful HTML charts, but they could ahve explained the tags much better. Overall its definitely a great read for a beginner!

This dude is no "hack"....

I picked this title up after playing with DamnSmallLinux a bit, (one of the hacks covered in this book) as I was intrigued with Knoppix, the "live" CD Linux Distribution on which DamnSmallLinux is based. The OS can run on most machines one would normally encounter at homes or in a work place. So what? What can you do with it? Well... that is what the book covers, and the author, Kyle Rankin, covers it extremely well. There is material here for a novice absolutely unfamiliar with Linux or Unix as well as instructions for the use of advanced tools for IT professionals of every stripe. You want a secure carry along filesystem? Well, you could go out and get a laptop... spending hundreds if not thousands, and get a good padded case to prevent damage to it in your travels. Or... you could buy this book (which includes a Knoppix CD) and a USB storage device, throw them both into a coat pocket or a back pack and head off to where the computers are kept. Once you arrive you can write a novel, encrypt an email to your girl-friend, and as long as you are there, fix a broken Windows operating system. The book and the CD gives you the ability to do all these things and more. Maybe you just want to experiment with Linux. This is perfect! You don't have to abandon your Windows or your BeOS installation, just run Knoppix from the CD and any errors you make will be gone as soon as you reboot... unless you create a persistent file system on writable media (also covered!) Buy this book. Start learning about Knoppix, the most exciting Linux distribution currently out there!

Awesome Text

This is by far the best text for a second course in computer architecture. It is an advanced book, so I don't recommend it for as a text for a first course in comp. arch. For a first course, refer to the text by the same authors titled Computer Organization and Design: A hardware/software Interface. In any case, this text is one of the best text I've seen. (And I have seen lots of computer books, from compiler design to VLSI design) If you're interested in how hardware works, get this book!
