Subject: New Linux Book - LUG Discount


We didn't want to post this directly to the mailing list. You are listed as
the LUG
contact for your lug from the site lugww.counter.li.org. Since you are
listed as the contact
you have received this email.

I wanted to let your LUG members know that the LDP Guide, Securing and
Optimizing Linux: 
RedHat Edition is now shipping from OpenDocs Publishing. We want to
encourage all LUGS to 
take a look at this book. There is a pre-final edit on the LDP site at 
http://www.linudoc.org/guides.html#securing_linux where you can download a
PDF for review.
Please keep in mind that this is a pre-final edit and does not have the
grammar and other
items quite tidied up yet. Further in this email is a list of the topics
covered within the book.

The book comes with RedHat 6.2 and RedHat 6.2 PowerTools on CD.

We would ask that you present this to the LUG mailing list or at one of
your meetings. You 
will see below that there is a hefty discount for LUG members if the LUG
purchases at least 5.
