Welcome to the Virtual Training Company's title on Introduction to openSUSE. I'm Bobby Rogers and I'll be your guide throughout this course as we talk about SUSE Linux. Now, before we get to heavy into the course, let me point out a couple of things about pronunciation. The purist among you there will say that it could be pronounced susay, or suse, either way and I'm here to tell you that I've heard both versions and to be honest with you, I don't know which one is correct, but I've heard that both are. So occasionally you might hear me pronounce it susay and sometimes you might hear me pronounce it suse. So with that, we'll go ahead and look at our introduction. During the course we're going to talk about several topics. First we're going to cover what Linux is and give you a little bit of the background history. Now, we're not going to make you experts on Linux in just a five-minute video, but hopefully, for the duration of the course, you're going to learn all about openSUSE and you'll learn why it's one of the better distributions out there. We'll also talk about some features of open SUSE and its history. After we get done with that, we'll actually go in and look at installing openSUSE Linux. We'll actually show you the different ways you can install and the different mediums that you can install with; across the network, CD, DVD and so forth. After we get done with that, we'll look at the popular desktops that you can use with openSUSE; such as GNOME or KDE and we may look at a couple of other desktops as well and how they favorably compare to the Windows Vista and Windows XP desktops. Then we'll move on to systems configuration and management and we'll look at the various ways we can configure our system components in openSUSE. We'll look at text-based configuration, as well as GUI configuration. After that, we'll move on to configuring hardware on openSUSE where we'll look and, and install hardware, uh, using YAZ the built in hardware installer and configuration manager for openSUSE. Then we'll talk about configuring networks on openSUSE. We'll look at both the traditional wired methods of connecting to the network and wireless methods as well. We'll also take a look at managing users and passwords on openSUSE and how to manage groups as well. Then we'll move on to using applications. We'll take a look at some of the more popular applications that come standard in the box with openSUSE. And finally, for the advanced users out there, we'll look at configuring server services. We'll have two parts for this particular topic. We'll look at configuring services such as DNS, DHCP and even Apache web server. Then, for the security folks out there, we'll move on to configuring openSUSE security and some of the different ways you can secure your box and making sure it's functional at the same time. And speaking of security, we'll also take a look at AppArmor. AppArmor is a built-in security application that compares favorably with the SE Linux and it's unique to openSUSE. We'll also take a look at monitoring and logging on openSUSE. We'll look at performance monitoring and system monitoring and also how to log events on openSUSE. Then we'll put it all together and we'll look at some best practices that we can have when using and administering an openSUSE Linux box. Then we'll wrap the course up. It's going to be a very good course. I'm looking forward to working with you on it.
