Yeah, possibly, but the audience of these books are hardly clueless
newbies who need to bed guided step by step through the instruction --
they are system administrator who are supposed to set up naming service
or remote boot service for a company. I think they should be trusted to
sort between information that is relevant to them and which is not.

... akin to books about firewall and internet security that only talk
about ipchains, mention ipfilter in passing, but completely fail to say
even a single word about SunScreen or FW1. Sorry, but I simple can't
take those people seriously.
