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 have set up a domain controller by using samba. I have another machine on the network that shares hosts files, so a file server, using samba on the file server i want to share the files. however, i need samba to authorise users access to files depending on what username is logged into the domain. i figured you need to go somewhere (the domain controller) to get user names and passwords, so i set it to have read/write access to the folder and have tried the security setting as user, domain, server etc, and having the password server set to being the domain controller. but when i access a folder, it tells me access is denied (the folder i want to share is mapped on my computer of the windows client by using a netlogon.bat file on the domain controller)
what do i do? how can i get this working the way i want to, i have been stuck on this for ages now and ive looked everywhere about file permissions, i think i finally understand how they work - kind of, but i have set permissions in unix to allow my username rwx and set the group as well but nothing seems to work unless i set security on samba on the file server to share, whereby anyone can have access to the folders and when someone creates a folder - its created by "nobody"
