About Christopher Negus

About the Author Chris Negus has worked with UNIX systems, the Internet, and (more recently) Linux systems for nearly two decades. Over that time, Chris worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories, UNIX System Laboratories, and Novell, helping to develop the UNIX operating system. Features from many of the UNIX projects Chris worked on at AT&T found their way into OpenLinux and other Linux distributions. Over the past few years, Chris wrote several books on Linux and the Internet, including the best-selling Red Hat Linux Bible, Internet Explorer 4 Bible, and Netscape Plug-ins for Dummies, for IDG Books Worldwide, Inc. He also co-authored several books for Que Corporation, including the Complete Idiot's Guide to Networking (second edition) and Using UNIX (second edition). He also wrote articles for Internet World, NetWare Connection, and Visual Developer magazines. At home, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife, Sheree, and his boys, Caleb and Seth. His hobbies include soccer, singing, and exercising with Sheree.
