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 having a very unusual problem that hopefully is something stupid I am missing. I have a fedora16 box being used as file server. The network has a mix of other fedora 15 and 16 plus some windoze machines.
This is a new setup for the server and I put a test folder and shared it from the root directory. everybody can connect and use it fine. When I go to share a full drive that is mounted in the system (the terabyte of storage dedicated on a seperate drive from the boot drive) nobody can access it. Fedora boxes say they can't mount it and windows will say no such share exists however both systems ask for a user and password. I used the same user and pass from the test which still works. Why can't I share a full drive? What am I missing?
1.. samba is set up and working with a directory on the boot drive.
2.. The dedicated data drive is visible, mounted and working on the fedora box
3.. All users can access the testshare without issue
4.. Nobody on the network can access the dedicated data drive
5.. The drive is visible on the network
6.. No messages about bad user or password.
