Product Description

More and more, technology professionals are relying on the Web, online help, and other online information sources to solve their tough problems. Now, with O'Reilly's ""Networking CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0, you can have the same convenient online access to your favorite O'Reilly books--all from your CD-ROM drive.

We've packed seven of our best-selling guides onto this CD-ROM, giving you 4,016 pages of O'Reilly references and tutorials --fully searchable and cross-referenced, so you can search either the individual index for each book or the master index for the entire collection. Included are the complete, unabridged versions of these popular titles:

""TCP/IP Network Administration, 3rd Edition

DNS & Bind, 4th Edition

Building Internet Firewalls, 2nd Edition

SSH, The Secure Shell: The Definitive Guide

Network Troubleshooting Tools

Managing NFS & NIS, 2nd Edition

Essential SNMP

As a bonus, you also get the new paperback version of ""TCP/IP Network Administration, 3rd Edition.

Now it's easier than ever to find what you need to know about managing, administering, and protecting networks. This unique CD-ROM is a dream come true for network and system administrators--potent combination of books that offers unprecedented power and flexibility in this ever-expanding field. Formatted in HTML, ""The Networking CD Bookshelf, Version 2.0, can be accessed with any web browser, so you have a complete library of technical books that you can carry with you anywhere you need it. No other resource makes so much valuable information so easy to find and so convenient to use. Review

Practically every network administrator has a shelf full of O'Reilly animal books to help decode the mysteries of software, services, and connectivity techniques--but that multicolored bookshelf isn't too portable. Now, harried administrators who have technical problems away from the office need only load The Networking CD Bookshelf in their laptops and be on their way. This single disk holds the full text of six popular O'Reilly titles--TCP/IP Network Administration, DNS and BIND, Sendmail, Sendmail Desktop Reference, Practical Unix and Internet Security, and Building Internet Firewalls--making it an excellent value.

When you load the disk, an HTML welcome page pops up in your browser, allowing you to view the table of contents of any of the books. From there, you can drill down to the specific chapter and section that contains the information you're looking for. The disk also includes a combined index of all six books, so it's easy to find the information that interests you. The text itself contains links to related sections, as well as all illustrations. Though it's possible to perform a full-text search on all six books, this Java-based feature seems rather slow.

The publisher packs this CD-ROM with a traditional printed copy of DNS and BIND, Third Edition, as a bonus, but The Networking CD Bookshelf CD-ROM represents an excellent value by itself. --David Wall
