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.

Right here we go. I've been messing about with my nfs all evening. I figured i might as well install amule and see if i could make amule use the temp and incoming dir's that emule uses on the the nt file system. Apparently i can, if i set the read/write permissions correctly. However, even if i set these permissions it still won't work. But this isn't the problem i'm trying to get solved (though info is welcome). The problem is that amule won't start due to this error. Removing amule, even rebooting, and reinstalling amule doesn't solve this. Now i could leave it and go with xmule but that would be to easy. Somewhere on my wonderfull kubuntu must be a temp file that holds the last settings i gave to amule. Obviously i want them to be gone !! So, as you might guess, the question is: where do i look for this temp file?
Both aMule and eMule use .part, .part.met and .part.met.bak file types to store temp data. I've checked and they are indeed compatible. It's when i set my windows temp dir up in aMule that i get the following message:
Permissions on the aMule incoming directory too strict!
aMule cannot proceed. To fix this, you must set read/write/exec
permissions for the folder '/home/kreliz/Desktop/F:/Incoming'
Well no explanation needed there, but how do i go about doing so? Will i be using 'chmod' since i'm use a samba server to connect to windows? Again, pardon my noobidity, i'm still on a huge learning curve. But it's exactly these permissions i want to familiarize myself with.
