1. Linux System Administrators' Guide 0.4 goes HTML


The Linux System Administrator's Guide (SAG) is a book on system
administration targeted at novices. I've been writing it for
some years, and it shows. I have, finally, made an official
HTML version, available at the SAG home page

There is both a browsable version, and a .tar.gz that contains all
the files.

I used the LaTeX2HTML program to do the conversion, with some
automated fixing. The whole process is automated, so it should
be easy to make an HTML version of the next version of the book
as well.

I'm sure there are still many rough edges (proof-reading is for
wimps!). Please don't hesitate to tell me about them. Put "xyzzy"
in the subject, if you want to be sure to reach me.
