Yes, some parts are a bit out of date, but most oft the book is still

You may safely ignore the chapter about hardware ;-) The chapters
about configuring specific software usually could give you some basic
idea what's it about, but you should cponsult the software's docs to
do the real work. On most systems lpr and lilo are replaced by CUPS
and grub, so you may ignore that chapters. uucp is hardly used any
more. In the chapters about the kernel and X some important modern
things are missing (like udev, 3D graphics support).
