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 decided to switch to suse Linux version 9.0 as a test bed for our enterprise evaluation of Linux (formerly I was using RH 9.0). I am trying to bring up Samba on the file server and I think I am close but have an issue that I don’t understand and since I am so new to this ( simple stuff like radar and jamming systems I understand) I figured I better ask somebody that knows something.
My smb server is up and running, I can connect to the shared volume from a Linux workstation and can see the sample document. I can see the Linux box from my windows XP workstation but when I try to connect, I am prompted for a user ID and Password. When I enter the Linux user ID and Password the login box on the windows machine will replace the user ID with something like: test1/user1 – were “test1” is the machine name and “user1” is the user id entered. Although the user id and password entered are valid, I am never able to log into the smb server. Smb.config is very simple”
workgroup = WORKGROUP
os level = 2
security = user
path = /mnt/vol1
guest ok = yes
Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
Thanks for your input once I added the uyser to smbpasswd file I was able to connect without a hitch.
BUT>>>>>>>>> I just can't leave well enough alone so I downloaded the samba3 rpm's and tried installing them. Problem is I get a list ov conflicts with samba2 so Now I need to uninstall samba2 ( How the heck does that work) and install samba3 . When I installed the first samba3 package, I gat a couple of message that said samba3 depends on samba3 client and samba3 winbind, is there a hopw-to that covers this or a list that shows the load order for these packages? I thought I had seen somewhere a commandline for rpm that would allow you to install several packages with one command? was I dreaming or do you know of such a thing.
I downloaded another copy of the samba3 files and this time I used the command "yast -i *.rpm" this isnstalled all of the rpm files at the same time and no more dependancy problems. Think I am on my way now to configure samba3. I also installed the webmin program. seems to work pretty good but I still had to manually add the test user to the smbpasswd file even after I added them using the wedmin program. I will have to work on that some more.
