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 in the early stages of trying out Linux in our small company. The first stage is getting a machine working as a client on the Windows network and gaining some experience with Linux and its administration. I have got RH9 installed and working without too much trouble, and everything is running OK, I even got my modem installed for out of office dialup, and can access the internet through our gateway and router in the office, which I guess proves the Ethernet card in my laptop is working OK at least.
The trouble comes when I try and access the Windows 2000 servers on our network. I can see the network and the domain in Konqueror, and can access the top level or two of the network shares, but beyond this all the folders just look empty - even ones that contain documents and sub-directories, they're just empty. When I click on anything in Konqueror while it is looking in the folders it crashes with Signal 11.
I am guessing that my problem lies in a configuration file somwhere, but don't really know where to start. I have looked at and changed a few settings in smb.conf such as the Workgroup and WINS server setting, but to no avail.
Any help that anyone can provide would be very gratefully received - eventually I am hoping to persuade the sysadmin to install at least one or two Linux servers, the less problems I have to put to him the better!
Thanks for reading about my problems - I bet you have plenty of your own!
