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.

multiple domains and workgroups
A limitation of Windows is that you can only belong to one workgroup or one domain at a time while not being able to be in both a workgroup and a domain under the same instance of an operating system.
Has Linux overcome this limitation with SAMBA or by some other means?
I'm working with a user who wants to log on locally and be part of a workgroup sometimes, other times join 2 different active directory trees that are separate and only run one operating system. With Windows, I understand that this can't be done. That is why some Windows users dual boot with say XP media center and Professional on the same machine. I don't want to do this.
Obviously, they would have to switch users logging in and out.
