  sure.  while it's a 3rd-party courseware manual, it was obviously
written to emulate fairly closely red hat's admin course here:


so the best way i can sum it up is that it's a perfectly decent admin
course that covers all the standard admin topics you'd expect to see.
all i was interested in was any additional packages or configuration
that people on this list have used to great effect that most people
would *not* have thought of or heard of.

  for instance, is anyone version controlling their system config
files with a utility like, say, "etckeeper"?  that sort of thing.  i
just want to pad out some of the sections with a few more items.
