How to Install Linux for Red Hat Linux covers the entire installation process of Red Hat Linux 6.1 from both the text-based approach and using the new GUI-based installation program. The two CD-ROMs include the Red Hat Linux 6.1 version of the Linux Operating System and a Bonus CD with selected Red Hat PowerToolsTM and other handy files. Using Red Hat's Package Manager (RPM(r)), you can quickly install the wide variety of files included covering games, utilities, Internet Server, programming languages, C/C++ compiler and office productivity tools.

How To Install Linux provides those potential users with excellent documentation and the most popular Linux Distribution (Red Hat) available."
