Conventions Used in the Book

To make this book more usable, we've incorporated a few formatting conventions that should make it easier for you to find what you need. These include the following icons:

NOTE: The Note icon indicates something that you should pay special attention to.

WARNING: The Warning icon warns you about actions that could be hazardous to the health of your computer or your Linux installation.

ON THE CD-ROMS: The CD-ROMs icon refers to items found on the accompanying CD-ROMs, such as the aforementioned HOWTO files.

In addition, we've used some specific formatting commands in the text:

• Bold type refers to a command

• Italic type refers to a new concept

• Monospaced type refers to a command line entered directly at a prompt and ending with the Enter key, as in the following:

gilbert:/ elvis
