Hi all,

I'm working on a new SysAdmin guide for users who will be Linux experts.

Obviously I don't want to describe the Linux commands and syntax in great
depth in my guide, but am wondering how to make sure all the bases are
covered. Specifically:

- Is it enough to say that users are expected to be Linux savvy in the
document intro and leave it at that?

- Or do some companies also package a basic "off-the-shelf" Linux manual
with their own in-house manuals, and then simply refer to the
off-the-shelf manual when appropriate?

I'm interested in hearing how others have dealt with this issue.
Thanks very much
