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.

Ok, I need some help. It is now spring time & I can only justify so much time at the computer when there is yard & garden work to be done.
I am “NEW” to Linus / openSuSe 10.2. Working with shell “bash” I am weak. I learned computing on win95, 98se, & XP. I have had 2 boxes networked via a D-Link router for quite some time
I now have win98SE/SuSe10.2/printer on the old box and XP on the newer box.
I can move files freely between 98SE & XP.
I have set ups cups and can print from XP to 98 or SuSe. I can see linux and some folders and printer in explorer on XP but can not access them (pass word box opens & that is as far as I get) I can NOT see anything about XP box from SuSe.
I have internet access from both boxes / all 3 OS’s 98se/SuSe, & XP.
I have looked at ipconfig from the shell via root & user and everything as far as the ip addresses and hardware appear as it should? Examples in the books I bought SUSE Linux “O’reilly” & "SUSE Linux 10 Bible".
I am overwhelmed with all the separate programs working together to get it to work. Which are needed and which are not needed? ? ? I am at the point that I no longer am sure if I know what a domain or workgroup are.
I have no doubt that someone familure with Linux could set down & fix it in 5 minutes.
I just discovered ken@linux-499o~> info info Da WoW! I have been taking the intro tutorial, my mind is kind of fried with Ctrl+Alt 1-7, I saw for the first time today.
All I want to do at this point is be able to see an move files from XP to SuSe & move files form the shares on SuSe to XP. I no longer even know what question to ask.
When this problem is solved, I will work on installing SuSe on the XP box.
Can someone tell me what info you need & where to get it or what to do.
You could set up a share on the XP box then use a program like SMB4K in linux to mount the share. Note: Linux does not natively write to ntfs partitions so you may lose data when writing to your XP box from Linux. There are a few programs that address this shortfall e.g. Captive or FUSE you may want to check these two out for suitability.
I know what you want to achieve, I have my network set so that I can access my Winblow$ boxes from my Linux, I just did a network share of the folder/s that I wanted to read/write to, set the permission to allow changes to the files contained within that folder and used smb4k to mount the share onto my Linux box. You should also be able to browse your network from within SuSe and access the folder/s that way without the use of smb4k.
