      There are enough low wage Indians thinking they know how to administer Unix systems. Yet there foreign masters do not trust them to execute any command without prior approval. I witnessed this scenario many times while waiting for the Indian to call the manager at the client for approval. Besides you can find the titles of a plethora of Unix administration books via any Internet search engine.
