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.

1. I am not sure ["public"] is acceptable. Try [public] instead.
2. If you see the share at W98 box can you open it? If not what is the message?
3. Re logon: 'domain logons = yes' is missing. What is the message when you try to logon?
1. I changed it to [public]
2. I don't see a share in my explore. I get a popup box which want me to enter a password for the share IPX$. I don't created this share as far as I know.
3. I added this to my config file. The error I receive after trying to logon to my domain is "Incorrect parameter". Not a very usefull message!
I created a new user to samba. This user exist in both Linux and Win98. They both has the same passwords.
When I want to logon on the domain "myDomain" I get windows popupbox with the message (translated from dutch) "Incorrect parameter". If I type the ip number in the field "domain", the samba server makes some noice (harddisk) and I receive the message "password is incorrect or permission to this domain is not granted".
If I change the security to share I CAN access my shares on my server. But I still cannot logon to my server (still get the strange error). Does this mean I have not setup my samba users correctly? I think that is strange. My linux users and my win98 users are the same and have the same password. I also ran the command "smbpasswd -a username". Do I forgot something?
I think the job is almost done. The new settings in the smb.conf files works better. If the user has a blanco password it works!! If the user has not a blanco password it can't logon because the password is wrong (thats what windows telling me). I am sure the password is correct.... So it almost works fine. I keep working on this.
