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.

Alright: I'm running RedHat 8.0 and everything was working fine. I installed samba and got it working with xsmbrowser, browsing a small home network of windows boxes.
I'm running my internet through a proxy, however, and seemingly without doing anything on my end, everything suddenly stops working in the middle of a browsing session. Xsmbrowser is unable to locate domain master and says the network is unreachable. In the network preferences, eth0 is deactivated and won't activate.
I think someone might have run the network wizard on an XP box I was connecting to, but I'm not sure if it would've had any effect...
Alright: I' ve no problem with pinging the computer I want to connect to, which was not possible before without a fixed ip, but I still get a strange string of errors trying to browse it with samba and access its connection through a proxy.

Ah, sorry about all this: thanks so much for your help.
I assume that file and printer sharing is installed but what protocols are used on the XP machine? the linux box will only use TCP/IP so I would suggest remving all others unless you require them for something else.
I'm affraid that's me for the night - I'll check back tomorrow though.
