There are two best admin tools for Linux. They are Linuxconf and Webmin.
The Linux System administration tools are :
Linuxconf http://www.solucorp.qc.ca/linuxconf Linuxconf is a extremely large project. It is tremendously powerful and has large number of features. Linuxconf is the BEST KNOWN system admin tool for Linux!! It is available in all distros like Redhat, Debian, Suse, and others. The Linuxconf is the equivalent of SAM of HPUX and SMITTY of AIX. It runs on console window and as well as in GUI in X-Window. On Debian Linux to download and install just do 'apt-get linuxconf'.
The Webmin is the most powerful and very popular system admin tool for Linux. Webmin is so popular and it was awarded the best System Administration tool for Solaris, BSD, Linux, HPUX, AIX, SCO and others. Webmin had been winning awards year after year for the past 5 years by many organisations, conferences and editors. Webmin can also be used for admin of other OSes like AIX, Solaris, HPUX, IRIX, BSD, SCO Unix, OSF, Darwin, Apple Macintosh Mac OS X and Cygwin. The best supported systems at the moment are Solaris, Linux (Redhat in particular) and FreeBSD. Webmin is written in Perl and Perl is universal like "C" and unlike "C" it is scripting language. Perl is "cousin-brother" of "C" language. But major drawback is that you need a X-Window system, Apache Webserver and Perl installed and running before using Webmin. And here is where Linuxconf fills the gap - you do not need X-Window and others to run Linuxconf. Linuxconf can run even in dumb text-terminal console with ncurses. The Webmin is at http://www.webmin.com . Go here and download the Webmin package.
There is Redhat admin tools.
