In chapter 6. Debian system administration on page 335:

The /etc/udev/rules.d/local-netifaces file in the last example in the subsection "Renaming network devices" in section 6.7.1 fell prey to LaTeX. Instead of SYSFSaddress, it should say SYSFS{address}. The example thus becomes:

~# grep lan /etc/udev/rules.d/local-netifaces
KERNEL="eth*", SYSFS{address}="00:00:de:ad:be:ef", NAME="lan"

Richard Bejtlich, Tao Security: Krafft is obviously a Debian enthusiast, but he is not a zealot blind to any flaws Debian might possess. He is also not afraid to praise other OS' (like NetBSD) or declare that certain misconceptions (think debconf) are invalid. When necessary he compares Debian tools or syntax to other Linux distributions, such as a chart on pp 200-201 on apt, yum, up2date, and urpmi. The book also contains a large number of footnotes with URLs for more research and additional commentary.
