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 testing integrating Linux into my AD network to allow single sign on to either Linux or Windows using AD credentials. I've followed some tutorials on using LDAP authentication via the pam_ldap and nss_ldap modules but they don't seem to work.
I've tried configuring my SuSE Professional 9.1 client using Kerberos but the result wasn't good. The user had to exist in both AD and /etc/passwd to be able to login using AD credentials. It did however allow to my change passwords from the Linux system and have it update in AD.
I also tried using SAMBA and winbind to login which works but I can't seem to change passwords from the Linux system as I just get an error message about some authentication system not being supported after typing passwd.
Can anyone help me out on how to get this to work?
