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'm trying to get a network printer set up on my PC. I'm at school... and so we log onto the server here before we can print.
When I set up the printer on my WinXP box, there's no issue. I simply follow the Add Printer wizard and it works.
On my Fedora 6 box, I'm having difficulties.
First of all, I run the printer config, and then when I press the "Verify" button (after entering the device path and user authentication), I get the message: "Verified. This print share is accessible".
So this is a good thing.
Anyways, my problem seems to be that, even though it allows me to 'see' the printer, I cannot print to it because there is no way to forward my credentials to the server when I'm trying to print.
Even our network admin has worked on this for me, and he's even stumped as to how to do it.
So basically, it's up to me to do some research and see if I can figure this all out. I'll continue reading these forums (i've already checked out some threads on CUPS), and google etc... but does anyone know if it's possible for me to forward my credentials, so that I can print on the network here in our dept?
