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.

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 need some help with my setup. I'm getting more competent with linux, but there are some things that still mistify me.
I have a network with 2 windows XP Pro machines, 1 Mac OS9 machine, an OSX laptop, and a random XP Pro laptop that's used more externally than on the network. They're all running on a workgroup.
I've just bought and installed a Debian server. I've got it running with Apache, PHP4&5, various DB servers... the works. Its going to run as a print, file, and development server, and I'm hopefully going to have Subversion running on it - I'm using tortoisesvn on the windows boxes, and I'm still looking for a client for the Macs.
Now my problem. I need to set up my network to use it as a print, file, and dev box... but I'm not sure how to proceed.
I've got samba and cups working, and I can access the box by typing in its IP. But thats as far as I've got.
So, can anybody point me in the right direction? All the sites I've found tell me I need to set up samba as a domain host, but I don't really want to mess about with the network too much because of the Macs.
