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 have a problem with logging on via LDAP on eDirectory.
I want to be able to log in directly on my eDirectory server with NLD(Novell linux Desktop).
I've configured everything, and it works fine, if I have the user locally
on NLD. But if I remove the local user with the same name as in
eDirectory, it won't log on.
I've tested this with a netware 6.5 server, and SuSe Enterprise linux
And with both servers I have the same problem.
If the eDirectory user logs on, with a local account without a home
directory. The home directory is created.
I need to get this working, because we want to deploy a lot of linux
workstations (around 800), and we can't add all eDirectory users locally
on all 800 machines.
I don't think it's normal that I must have a local user with the same name as on eDirectory. I can't find anything about this in the novell documentation, or any other documentation. I could've forgotten something, but don't know what.
