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.

oh yeah... that's different... XP seems to have a limitation about connecting as different users to the same resource...
so if you're trying to connect to \\192.168.1.1\joe as joe, and \\192.168.1.1\jim as jim, XP would crap on the second connection, because it cannot handle multiple logons to the same resource (being \\192.168.1.1)
--i haven't really looked into this much, just that i know it exists as a limitation... my solution is sym links on the server side...
hmmm... i thought i'd be clever, given the solution above, and tried putting in a dummy entry in XP hosts file to point to my server...
and then access by \\dummy
rather than \\10.1.1.25 (in my case)
-- the existing login information went through anyways, what a bunch of losers.
although i did notice:
given that my user is in the same group as the other users, and i samba on user level access, i can run
\\10.1.1.25\otherUsername\ and it pulls up... but then again, this is a group level share, and apparently you have problems with that...
solution -- by using tools->map network drive and the dummy entry in the hosts file, i can pass a different login!
