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 am new to linux and SAMBA. I am using Linux as a file server and as a back up machine to interface with my 2 windows xp computers.
I created a shared directory, and am able to access and create new directories in it without any problems. The problem is that I am not able to do anything with the subdirectories that I have created. I can see them and read them, but I can not copy any files over to them or even create another directory inside of them.
The first directory is called aeproberts. I have created two folders in there called Music and Photos. I can't write to either the Music or the Photos folders.
I can access and write to aeproberts directory, but I am unable to write to any subdirectories that I create. It is killing me. Isn't there a command that will give me access to the aeproberts folder and every directory underneath it.
Here is my smb.conf code. PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE OUT!!!!!
