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.

allright, i had my samba configured. everything worked fine. now it doesn't. i don't know where else to look at for the problem. I checked it with and without my firewall running although it worked with my firewall running before. I checked my smbd.conf file to make sure nothing changed why it would i dont know. I also did the testparm command and it says everything is fine. My win2k machine sees the name of my slack9 machine when i go to computers near me but when i try to go to that machine and see my share it says that it is not accessible. Nothing at all has changed on either machine since last time i used it except maybe a reboot and i have installed ethereal on my slack9 machine since then. Other than that i cant figure out why it doesn't work all of the sudden. any ideas?
when i do a "ps aux" i can see nmbd running but my smbd is not running anywhere. If smbd is not running then how come it says its running when i go to swat...status and how come it says its running in the log file. then if i type smbd and check the log file i see error messages where it couldn't bind to port 139 because it is in use, probably by the smbd already but something isn't making a connection here. i can view all the packets using ethereal but i don't understand what all that means yet because i am just starting to learn all that.
funny thing is i can see nmbd running when i do ps aux but swat says its not running, i cant see smbd running when i do ps aux but swat says it is. I had no problem ftp'ing in and getting the file i wanted. i have no trouble pinging or ssh'ing in. I am about ready to say fuc|< samba and ftp and just limit everything to ssh since it is the only secure thing between all of them anyway and what do ya know i get half the responses when i search for posts/problems setting up ssh vs. ftp servers or samba!!
Thankyou for the thousands of responses, but i am saying fuck samba!!! I closed everything down except ssh and since i can do that on my win2k machine i am deleting this samba shit since noone knows anything about it and i dont really need it.
