I use this book in conjunction with CentOS 5.2 (Red Hat Enterprise clone).
In regards to the misguided instructions, for instance the PXE setup. I have gone through the chapter about 5 times now and slowly stepped through the documentation as it explains but still have yet to be able to get the correct outcome.(a working PXE installation). I have previous experience with PXE so I was able to figure this out on my own with no issue but worry that some new admins to RHEL will have a hard time getting this particular method of installation setup. I'm unfortunetly human so I still may have gotten the steps down wrong and other may find that the instructions are infact correct. If so ... cool. :)

Generally one of the weakest of books about RHEL I have read. I would say, better download documentation from Red Hat website for free and save the money for other good Linux books.
