Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I can't ping my XP box using its netbios name, neither i can nmblooup it. I'm trying to smbmount XP box share, but it only works when i use its IP address and not its nebios name. Like this: smbmount //192.168.1.34/sharename ..... and it won't work if i use "smbmount //hostname /sharename ...
Today I've changed all machines on my LAN to static addresses, not running DHCP server on the router any more. After this I could not mount the shared folder at the XP machine on my linux box. It said that I specified a wrong share name or something. I solved this by entering the IP address and the Host name of the XP machine that has a shared folder, into my resolv.conf. The thing is though, with DHCP i had to put IP and Hostname into the /etc/samba/lmhosts and NOT into /etc/hosts or /etc/resolv.conf. Without the DHCP server (static addressing), it is /etc/resolv.conf and NOT /etc/samba/lmhosts or /etc/hosts.
