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 never really used this setting before on my Samba server, I change samba users passwords locally on the server when I need to. I do know that by entering the following, a user can change his/her password from a Windows machine connected to the domain.
First, what does a user need to do in Windows to change the password?
I am guessing that the first line means the samba password is the same as the password for the local user account on the server. What if I don't want to allow a user to log onto the server locally, but still want him/her to be able to change their Samba password? Is there anyway to do this? I don't really want to create a local password for the user, and then disable the account locally. I'd rather create a local account, not give it a local password (so it can't logon that way) and then just give it a samba password, and then allow it to be changed remotely via a Samba connection. Am I asking too much?
