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.

1) Network together two linux boxes so that I can share files b/w them.
2) Share the printers on system one with system two.
I tried toying with samba last night and I had it set up so that print sharing was turned on for system 1 and system 2 had the printers installed via networked cups. I couldn't print anything. When I set up samba I was able to see each computer, but then my printers dissappeared on the system 1 where they are a hardware attachement. I removed all the samba stuff and unhooked the printers. Rebooted and unconfigured them, then rebooted and rehooked/reconfigured them. Now they are back. Wierd...clearly I don't know what I am doing.
Currently the set up looks like this
eth0 ip 192.168.0.2
eth0 ip 192.168.0.5
Now if someone could help walk me through the appropriate way to set up the # 1 and #2 tasks from above ....that would be really great!
That's a pretty simple, but effective way of showing you how to use NFS to share devices over the network. Sorry it took me so long to respond, had a few crashes to deal with over the past couple of days. If you know how to mount and unmount your drives and partitions, NFS is extremely easy!!
