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 am running RH 9's vsftp server and have created:
/var/ftp/pub/upload - a write-only directory where anonyous ftp users can xfer files, but not view files
/var/ftp/pub where they can download (read) but not write files
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 5 21:19 /var/ftp/pub/download
drwx-wx-wx 2 root root 4096 May 5 21:00 /var/ftp/pub/upload
Now I would like to make it simple for my Windows PC users to read and write to those directories via a samba share. As a guest samba user I am asked for a password which I don't know how to answer.
As a Windows PC user with a linux account, I can view the shares from my PC, but I can't read from pub/download, and I get an 'Access denied' error when I try to open pub/upload.
This ftp/samba combination would seem to be widely useful, but I have been unable to find a guide to the proper combination of linux owner/permissions + sambe.conf settings which could effect this setup.
