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 am trying to get Samba running on a RHEL 4 server.
My intent is to have each user on the Network able to access a single /Public folder, as well as their own initial.surname folder.
I have managed to get the server registered on the ADS domain (Windows 2003) and can user the wbinfo -t/-g-/-u and getent passwd/group commands with no problems.
If I open the Network Server dialog in gnome I get a full list of the servers in the Domain, however I cannot access any of them - I'm not even given the option of a Name/Login.
On the windows boxes I can navigate to \\SERVERNAME and see the printer, Public and initial.surname folders. I can also access the Public folders contents. However, if I try and access the user folder the I am asked for a username and password, which are not authenticated.
I think there are 3 things going on that may be an issue.
1) We use no internal passwords on our servers - instead keeping them off any external networks.
2) I cannot tell where the use directories are supposed to be created (perhaps because they are only to be created after the password has been authenticated
3) I cannot get kinit username@domain to work getting the following error after entering the password:
kinit(v5): KDC reply did not match expectations while getting initial credentials
