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 have a problem which persists regardless of the distrobution I choose.
I am using Gnome 2.12 and have samba installed. I am using Gentoo.
My home network is all Windows boxes except for this one gentoo computer. Further, on my network are two domains. There is no domain controller for either, just windows boxes belonging to a workgroup.
Now, when I start Samba for the first time (on the only linux box), I can go into Gnomes Network Servers menu and see both workgroups. However, once ive explored one of them and accessed a shared folder, or even let the box just idle for a bit, I am asked to login to access the linux box. Further, I can henceforth only see ONE of the TWO workgroups. All other boxes are WinXP pro, no domain controller at all. When accessing shared folders on the windows boxes to other windows boxes, even across the workgroups, everything works fine. What is going on here?
Further, how can I keep samba from associating itself with these (or any) workgroups, and how can I login to a windows box using a local account, and how can I get samba to default as a guest(i.e. no name, just windows network browsing) user? The only way I can seem to get samba to work the way i want it is to end the service and than restart it, but than once i have used it on one of the workgroups, i wind up with the same problem again. To further complicate matters, more often than not, when i try to access the workgroups (when i can see them) i get the message that the contents of the folder cannot be displayed. Please, anyone help me with this, i know i cant be the only one with this issue
