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.

Hi, i've a Redhat 8 as my PDC, connected to LAN with Microsoft PC, the problem is how to keep my Rh8 as master browser, i've set 200 but other pc still keep become master browser, this create problem as win xp can't print thru the LAN, i also enable WINS services but it still "steal" the master browser. Please help.
what kind of windows is that "other pc" actually? As far as i know all types of windows servers have a sneak to take the role of master browser.
I never try to configure a PDC using linux myself, but i know i should try it in the future. cheers

Distribution: Linux Redhat 9.0, Fedora Core 2,Debian 3.0, Win 2K, Win95, Win98, WinXp Pro
Samba as PDC interacts differently with Win95/98/ME than it does with WinNT/2000/XP clients. Both sets react differently within domains so you have to cover both instances. In your smb.conf file in the global section add the following:
domain master = yes
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 65
In order to do this you must not have another PDC. You must also check to make sure that you do not have any non-Linux machines as BDC's.
