I've been advised off-list, that the title "Maximum Linux Security"
*does* exist. This is in addition to the earlier publication,
"Maximum Security". Both titles are by Anonymous. I had based my
assertion (above) on a search of SAMS web site,
http://www.samspublishing.com/ which yielded a reference to the
earlier publication only. Having now done a wider search, I can
confirm the following publication details:

Anonymous "Maximum Linux Security" SAMS Publishing ISBN 0-672-31670-6

Which assumes the information given at the following URL is correct:

http://www.nri.ca/Bookstore/OperatingSystems/Administration/MLS.html

My apologies to Roman and the list. Oh what a wicked web ....
