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.

still i got the error "Unable to copy PPD"
but when i hit "lpstat -t" i got:
scheduler is running
device for Dell: usb:/Dell/Laser%20Printer%201100?serial=BN45W71
Dell accepting request since Fri 14 Sep 2012 06:03:35
and when i check the network to see my printer, its there, so i try connecting now to my windows machine, it somehow connect but it does not have a driver so i provide it separately, after that, i got an error "Windows could not connect to the printer. Check the printer name and try again........"
is there something that im missing here?? kindly help..
Exposing printer drivers for Windows via SAMBA is a very weird thing, and it never worked for me.
There's some information about this at http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/...html#id2634359
But it's much more easier to get the windows driver installed on the windows machines and select the driver for your printer.
