Is that "Fedora 7 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Bible" by Christopher
Negus? http://www.bookpool.com/sm/047013075X

Doug,

Yes, that's the one. Before you buy, I also suggest checking out Jim
Klein's migration to Linux. He's been in the trade mag's a few times.
http://www.networkworld.com/newsletters/linux/2005/0530linux1.html

Good book references from Jim's Linux migration:
http://www.saugus.k12.ca.us/migration/planning1.html

Adhering to the first paragraph in his "Phase 2 - Dive In", from the link
above, is key.


Good luck!
