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.

Everytime I add a new share to Samba, for different users on my Linux box, i have to enter the username and password each time, that's not so much a problem, but XP seems a bit eratic (what a suprise huh?)
When I add a new share and try to connect (just by viewing Workgroup computers) it asks for username/password, but then if i try to access a different share it says i'm already connected under a different username, even tho I don't have that window open anymore.
Is there any way round this? Any setting in XP (SP2) that I should know about?
I really wanna keep all these shares seperate and under different users (it's each users' home directories for different projects i work on), I don't think mapping drives will work, but how about adding network places, or just browsing the Workgroup?
If it means entering username/password each time to access a particular share that's fine - although i would say it would be great if i could map one drive at the same time (to access my MP3's no matter what I'm working on).
WindowsXP is keeping just one user-name/password for each different file server. You first have to log off from such server (disconnect your mappings) before you can access the server with an other user-name.
To solve this you could create a share on the Samba server and put symbolic links to your directories in this share. From your Windows box you can just access this share and see all the other directories.
