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 know this has been covered but I can't find an answer anywhere. Samba seems to be working fine. . . . except: I can mount the shares on my Windows server but only read only. I don't think the problem is with my win box because I can read/write from all my windows boxes. I also can't connect to the printer on another workstation that I can use from other windows boxes.
Any ideas. I had this problem about a year ago on another linux box and I thought I had to change the I mounted the share, but I've fiddled with everything and can't get it to mount rw.
I add it to the fstab file in a way that lets anyone mount it, but you do have to specify which account to mount if from as they will be the owner. Example using jsmith ( uid=501 )
and using an account called jsmith on the WIndows box as credentials to connect to the share.
this will let anyone ( the 'user' switch ) mount the share //hostname/sharename onto /mnt/samba with read/write permissions ( 'rw' ) but it will not mount automatically ( noauto ). Along with this entry you can add this line to /etc/rc.local ->
So it will mount on boot, but not until after the network services ( like the network card!!!) have been started, since they start before rc.local is run.
The syntax for the share name may not be familiar to you, so I will show you what it would look like to connect to ( using Windows UNC syntax ) share c$ on \\windowsbox ->
//windowsbox/c\$ (notice the forward slash before the $ sign, that is necessary because the $ has special meaning in Unix/Linux .
