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.

Have tried lots of searching for this problem without much success so am posting this here in the hope someone here may help.
I have a the following setup
Samba 3.0.1 using winbind and security = DOMAIN
kernel 2.6.1 with acl support
The system is mostly running without problems. However if I view file
properties of files or directories from windows explorer and look at
the permissions the SID numbers are not resolved. On some machines
some of the SID numbers are resolved.
if I use the wbinfo -n name or wbinfo -s sid the resolution works
The linux box has only the default users/groups from the install.
Winbind works ok, I can log onto the box as any domain user without a problem.
The acl's seem to work ok. getfacl and setfacl work ok on the box.
However setting permission from windows explorer also has problems
and is different again on different machines.
If I use net groupmap list only some of the domain groups are listed and mapped to -1 which is fine as there are no linux matching groups.
Why do only some of the groups appear ?
I expect that these problems are due to only one fact that I am missing.
Does anyone else have problems displaying file permissions in windows explorer, and if so what did you do to fix it ?
