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 installed redhat linux 9, with samba configured as PDC (192.0.0.1) . The problem is that i am trying to get my win2k machine (192.0.0.2) to logon to the samba domain. I am able to browse the linux box thru network neighbourhood, and see the linux share, and to connect to this win2k computer to join the samba server (domain logon) , i am logging as administrator (win2k) and gave the domain and then i get prompted for the user name and password (samba root), and once i enter these, it throws up and error :
"The following error occured validating the name "YAHOO"
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"
My smb.conf file is pasted for your reference. I have a firewall running, but it has been configured to allow traffic from my win2k client. As mentioned earlier, i can see the linux box thru network neighbourhood.
