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 searched this forum (and several others) for ways to solve the problem we're having with our servers. I hope that someone can help me with this.
We have a windows 2003 web server running XP with three web sites. We would like for the separate users to be able to FTP their web page changes to this server without emailing them to the admin to upload (our current process).
We have a Linux v9.12 box set up as our email and FTP server.
Using Samba we would like to mount a device that points the user’s home folder to the Windows web server to the root folder of their own web site.
Here is our fstab file:
here is our cred file:
username = tinaj
password = ILove$MB
username = pancaker
password = Pancake$Good
Note: I haven’t entered a username/password for Nickie because I can’t get the other two accounts to work.
Using an FTP program, I am able to connect to the server and see my home folder with the tjweb folder as a subfolder. I can navigate to that folder and download files, but when I try to upload files I get this message:
“Could not create file.”
I am able to upload files to the home folder (/home/tinaj), but then to move them to the web server I have to telnet into the FTP server and log on as su to move them from the home folder to the tjweb folder.
When I telnet into the server and become su, I can see that all the files and subfolders are owned by ‘root’. As root, I can’t change the permissions on the files or folders to my own username.
We suspect that the issue is either a permissions issue on the web server, or that we’ve forgotten to change something in the Linux/Samba configuration that will allow us to upload files to subfolders in our home folders.
