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.

** I could really use some expert help here, or even take a stab in the dark if you dare. I appreciate any advice.
This is not the first time this has happened. I'll try to explain as best I can:
I was transferring a ~4GB file (rambo.mpg) from a win2k shared folder to a fat32 shared folder on my Dapper box. It aborted midstream after about ~3 GB or so and gave me some strange "Invalid Protocol" error (or something to that extent). It left a "rambo.mpg.part" file in the /media/windows/My Documents/My Video/ folder and I deleted it to start the file transfer over again.
1. Now, I cannot transfer that same file to that same shared fat32 folder (/media/windows/My Documents/My Videos/).
2. Also, even if I load up my XP box, I still cannot transfer that same file from that win2k box to my XP box folder (C:\My Documents\My Videos).
3. There is no rambo.mpg file anywhere shown in that folder.
4. I even searched for hidden/system files and the registry for keys (locks, etc) and nothing shows up.
5. I can however transfer that same file to any other folder (like C:\Windows\Temp) in XP.
6. Even if I rename that file to "rambo-firstblood.mpg" and try to transfer it to that same fat32 folder (My Videos), it won't.
7. I keep getting a "Cannot copy <filename>: The Parameter is Incorrect"
By the way, I had a similar issue happen a while back using samba on Ubuntu when transferring a large GB file (tar backup) to a Win2k share. In this case, it copied alright, but when I tried to delete that file in win2k it gave me a permission error or something and locked the file. I could not delete it.
The largest file that you can create on a FAT32 filesystem is 4GB-2 bytes. Older samba versions and I do not know the exact number were not compiled with large file support and were limited to <=2gb file tranfers.
What linux distribution / version and samba version are you running? Is the W2K share a NTFS or FAT32 filesystem? Check the file parmissions on the both boxes.
