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.

The company that I work for has around 10 Fedora Release 13 servers setup at remote locations that users save all of their documents from their computers.
From everything I can find on the fedora servers these folders are shared from the "home" folder.
I am trying to connect a windows computer from our home office to the fedora computer to backup the files and folders. If I connect to the server with a user from the remote site I can see their folders. I have tried to connect the \\<ip address\home with the root user and windows comes back with an error. The network admin before me has a user setup on the computer that to me looks like a super user and I have tried his account as well.
What am I missing to allow this connection?
I am new to Linux so if I need to post more information please let me know.
tricky this is going to sound dumb but what and where are the error logs that I need to look at, the windows computer tells me this.
"Windows cannot access \\ip address\home" check the spelling of the name otherwise, there might be a problem with your network to try to identify and resolve network problems, click diagnose.
Error code 0x80070035
The network path was not found.
the network path not found error I can understand because I am trying to access a share that is not shared. I think! lol
as for the smb.conf I have searched the internet over to find the location of this file. from what I have found it should be in this location /etc/samba/smb.conf I have listed the etc folder about 100 times and do not see the "samba" directory.
