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.

Story: I have installed Debian with 2.4 kernel and without x-windows and i have also installed cups-1.1.20rc2 together with SAMBA and configured it according to all how-to's, guides etc.
Problem: I cant print from my win2k-client to my linux-box, i am able to install the printer and also checking the properties (in win2k) but not able to print. I can connect to all shares and everything but not to printer. I am able to print from linux. I have tried at least 15 - 20 different conf-files but without result. I am also using a account in win2k that also exists in my linuxbox. I was able to print 1 time but then it said that the printer could not be connected but still i could print, but now i have screwed up the conf-files and re-installed CUPS again. What shall I do?

I'm not a samba guru but I thought I saw something recently regerding the security line. you might want to check some samba setup (howto) sites regarding the "security=" line. could have sworn that they recommended "user"
