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've tried to look for similar threads like this but unfortunate to find 1 that will guide thru the rest of the setup.
First of all, I'm so new to Linux that I've only started last 2 weeks ago just because I need to setup a Fax Server for the office. I've downloaded CentOS 4.4 and tried to follow the instructions I've found on the net on how to setup HylaFAX. I believe I was able to setup hylafax successfully but only on the local machine (although I haven't tried sending faxes using a phone line, but the fax does show in the faxstat.)
My problem is setting it up for the whole office to use. We're on a Windows Domain and all of the staffs are using Windows XP. I've tried to setup samba to share the fax printer as stated on all the guides i've seen on the net. I also configured the printfax.pl to work with hylafax. But still I'm getting an error on samaba. I don't know if it's a samba problem or if it's a hylafax problem. It's really difficult to troubleshoot since I'm a noob in Linux.
I hope that some of you guys was able to setup Hylafax (Preferably on a CentOS but not really important) on a Windows Network. I would like to ask for your big help in giving me a full detailed plan and guidelines on how to setup a Fax Server on windows Network.
But still I'm getting an error on samaba. I don't know if it's a samba problem or if it's a hylafax problem. It's really difficult to troubleshoot since I'm a noob in Linux.
It's pretty tough even when you're experienced if folk don't tell you what the error messages are.
We'll ned to know more about how you've set up samba, how the printer share is set up, and so on. What happens when you try to use the fax printer? Have you tried sharing a regular printer from this machine?
