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.

Newbie trying to setup samba, all seems well and i can view the samba server on the network and i am able to ping from windows and from linux ok. I think i have opened the ports using some command i found off the net
When i click on the samba server in windows it just says network path could not be found.
Any idea of how to could solve this problem would be most appreciated as ive been working on this for a few days.

On your smb.conf hosts allow = line try 192.168.1. that should allow anything in the 192.168.1. addressing to work. The "dot" at the end is important. This works for me and gives all six of my machines access.
