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.

Well here's the deal: my main PC is dual boot Slackware Linux 9.1 and
Windows XP. I want to be able to mount a specific directory on another box
which is also running Slackware 9.1 (and kernel 2.6.0) when I'm using
either Linux or XP. So I install samba in Linux on my dual boot PC, edit the
/etc/samba/smb.conf, put something like this in it:
comment = Music
valid users = cifsuser
path = /music/mp3
public = no
writable = no
printable = no
Basically I want this directory to be mountable ONCE and ONLY for this
other Slackware box and be available to only a some users on this box.
(I'll achieve that with permissions once I can get it to mount)
So I used 'smbpasswd -a cifsusers' entered a password in there and
then installed mount.cifs on the client box. And tried:
mount -t cifs //192.168.1.3/music$ /mnt/music -o user=cifsuser,pass=mypass
no way I can get the thing to work and there's not much help on Google to
get it working. So I'm kind of stuck now. Any help will be greatly
appreciated in getting this to work!
